Years ago I used and loved Cnet’s catchup utility which checked your apps and provided lists of updates automatically. They killed the product and while I tried VersionTracker for a while, I have been patiently waiting nearly five years for its eventual return. Someone else built it and did a great job.
Windows only: Software download web site File Hippo has released a handy piece of software called Update Checker, which scans your computer’s installed apps and then reports which ones could use an update.

Works great in Vista too.
