Copernic's Tracker is no longer maintained it seems. I'd suggest checking out UpdatePatrol (link) instead.

Some great resources here. And why pay a fortune for paid press release distribution? It's only in the early stages right now, but I've set up a website offering all the advantages of the paid services, for free. In my opinion all the best things on the web (if not necessarily in life) are!
