ASUS Easy Update

What is ASUS Easy Update?

ASUS Easy Update is a program designed to manage all installed ASUS programs on the user's PC and check for and update any new versions of the software if available. This service will run in the background when Windows starts and periodically check for updates.

About  (from ASUS)

ASUS Easy Update is a lightweight application that was designed in order to provide you with a simple means of staying up to date with the latest software releases for your system. The program runs minimized in your system tray and you can even schedule the update checks with a couple of mouse clicks.


It is typically pre-installed with most new ASUS computers. The most common release is 2.00.28, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version.

This program is pre-installed on some PCs

Pre-installed software such as this is usually included by default on the manufacturer's PC. Many OEM (original equipment manufacture) software that is included with a new PC is useful and in many cases required for the PC to function properly as in the case of various software drivers. However, some pre-installed software is optional and can be safely removed.
