I always store in my HDD setup files of software which I generally install after windows installation (like google chrome, skype ... etc). Updating these setup files manually.

I wonder if there is any free application, which checks for updated software and automatically downloads setup files to predefined folder?

It works for most popular freeware. Auto download install and update. Just one click

I vaguely recall that win-get does this. I don't remember if I've ever used it or not.

Note that Ubuntu Linux automatically downloads updates for most third-party software by default. It pops up a message asking if you want to install the updates. If you tell it to install them all, it installs them all without asking you any more questions.
