I have an update on the matter of the poor rating given to CleanSofts.org first mentioned by an anonymous reader in the comments of the Best Free Software Update Monitor article on 22 January 2009. This has changed to a clean bill of health. Web of Trust gives the CleanSofts site a light green rating, which means it has a good reputation (on the other hand, FileHippo gets a dark green rating, i.e. an excellent reputation).

In a recent article by Mark Joseph Edwards in the Windows Secrets newsletter, he notes how slow Site Advisor is to update their database, bringing into question the accuracy of their ratings.

Update: There is further clarification on Site Advisor's update policy here.
