Update Checker

Software downloading site Filehippo releases a small software that called Update Checker, it will scan your computer for installed software, check the versions and then send this information to Filehippo to see if there are any newer releases. These are then neatly displayed in your browser for you to download. The client is free, only 100kb. It works on any Windows PC running Vista, XP, 2003, 2000 or 98, but requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0.
I concern about if Update Checker safe, does it collect personal information and send back to Filehippo? Its website says "NO", but I am still worry about that.

软件下载网站Filehippo发布了一个很小的软件叫Update Checker,它会扫描你电脑中已经安装的软件,检查他们的版本,并把信息发送给Filehippo,该网站会确定是否这些软件有新版本。如果有的话,它会出现在你的浏览器上让你下载。这个软件是免费的,体积很小只有100kb。可以在所有Windows版本,Vista、XP、2003、2000和98上运转,但要求有Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0环境。
我关心的是Update Checker的安全性,它会不会收集个人信息发给Filehippo?该网站说“不会”,但我还是有点担心。
