Secunia produces free software audit tool

The browser-based program - called SecuniaSoftware Inspector - scans a PC looking for a range of applications including browsers and their plug-ins, media players, instant messaging programs, email programs, and also checks that the Windows OS is up-to-date.

This list is then compared to a Secunia database of 4,000 applications to determine if the PC has application vulnerabilities. If it has, the user can click on the insecure application from a list of those found to find more information on which version should be loaded, and a follow a link to download an update.

SecuniaSoftware Inspector is also mentioned in the article below, but I think it deserved its own bloggage.
