I’m finally giving up on Ninite as there are now to many programs behind their paywall. I have been testing an alternative for awhile now and it seems to work good and its free!
Patch My PC
Same sort of deal it lets you download a portable utility (non install) that unlike Ninite checks your PC and lets you update what you have and or install new stuff. Works pretty neat. The only thing I miss is I think Ninite was a little better at not installing icons and other stuff.
