The above program pops up frequently and asks me to update 33 programs.

Just wondering if it is really necessary to carry out these updates, or would they be picked up
during the running of Windows Update ?

Is WinZip Computer Updater a legit program ? I note there is a cost to use the updater, though
there was no dollar fee mentioned, but I suspect it would be payable once the download is finished.

Any thoughts/advice ?

Never seen any one of those programs that actually work. If it were me I'd uninstall it. They dont do anything that a bit of manual maintenance cant do.

To quote some advice on Malwarebytes site:


My personal experience is to stay away from driver updating software. The problem with these are that they often provide inaccurate information on your drivers and could potentially cause serious issues with your pc if you install an incorrect driver. The best place to get updated drivers is from your manufacture.

Ignore it Curly.In fact I would uninstall that so-called updater. I see Wainui says the same and he is vastly more experienced than I.
