Online Software Inspector
I've always relied on Windows Update to tell me if my system is up to date, but of course it only checks a subset of all Microsoft products, and leaves out all programs from other vendors. I recently heard about Secunia's Software Inspector web site, which requires Java, and can check the version of a whole bunch of software. There is also a beta product called Secunia PSI, which I tried out. I found the interface a bit confusing, and it is beta software, but it's still worth the effort.
