Software for Checking updates on Different Forums.

Hi Experts

I have to check the updates to selected links on 4-5 different forums on a daily basis. Is there some tool which can automatically check out those 5 links and inform me about any new updates that have happened there, after my last visit? So that I do not have to manually go and check out myself, just to find that there have not been any new posts made on those links.

I am not looking for email alerts etc. type of option. I need some software or other tool, which can show me the Exact New Updates that have happened on those selected links that I provide it.

Please suggest me some method by which this could be done.

I am using  Windows 7 x64 on my main machine.

Thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hello,
try to locate in your forums if they support RSS feeds. Then you can use RSS reader application or plugin to the browser.

@Tomas, thanks for the link.

I also found one more software that might work - http://aignes.com/ WebSite-Watcher

Trying to see if they could be used for my work.

Any more ideas are welcome. Thanks
