I left VLC player out of the outdated check because it usually required user interaction when installing.

When patch my pc is loaded if will give you a list of outdated sw installed including optional sw. So if the latest version of thunderbird is 6.0.2 and you have 6.0.1 installed it will show up and you will know you should check thunderbird.

I'm not seeing this in ver 2.0.3. I just tested, and an outdated VLC did not show up as needing updated. I will be happy to test further if needed.

This is something I'm certainly planning on doing in the future. Most likely a cheap Pro version intended for admin's where they could control where everything is downloaded from and more features.

Yeah it most likely won't work if .NET 3.5 is corrupt. Here is a link to .NET 3.5 offline install you could try this http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=25150

Most likely a Microsoft .NET issue. Make sure you have Microsoft .net 3.5 SP1 installed if so re-install it.

Patch My PC uses the default silent installation method for software. You will have to manually change these settings if they are overwritten. However Java should only show in system tray when in use.

No optional software is installedby default. You need to click the optional software button and check the checkbox if you want to install any optional software. When patch my pc is loaded if will give you a list of outdated sw installed including optional sw. So if the latest version of thunderbird is 6.0.2 and you have 6.0.1 installed it will show up and you will know you should check thunderbird.
