        It appears that Intel has discontinued Intel Remote Keyboard from out of almost nowhere, so I suppose that that program could be removed from the poll now.

        In its place, I’ve got some additional suggestions, if you guys are accepting new suggestions at the moment:
        • AI Suite (by ASUS)
        • PowerChute Personal Edition (by APC)
        • Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable
        • Visual Studio Community

    Please consider DUMo from KC Softwares (you already have SUMo). It does not self-update.

    Thanks.

    I think Nirlauncher is a great choice it has 300 utilities . it is lightweight and free
    https://launcher.nirsoft.net/

    There should be an option to monitor all the apps installed in system like SUMo (https://kcsoftwares.com/?sumo) so that user can install some of the updates manually for the apps which are not supported.

    Cyberfox will be discontinued when Firefox 52 ESR reaches it’s end of life.
    Some of the older versions (not as old as the “Legacy Support” version) worked perfectly on Windows XP using Alky for Applications (some things didn’t work though). When I tried the latest version, it didn’t work anymore.

    I would recommend BurnAware free, a good DVD/BDXL writing tool. I have been using CDBXP until I have found some troubles (detecting internal DVD drive).
    An other browser is Cliqz which is good enough to recommend for your list. It is based on Mozilla Firefox. I wish you great success in your project!

    I often visit your site and have noticed that you don’t update it often.
    More frequent updates will give your site higher authority & rank
    in google. I know that writing posts takes a lot of time, but you can always
    help yourself with miftolo’s tools which will shorten the time
    of creating an article to a few seconds.
