How can I create a cumulative software installer which can be updated easily?

We all like a few chosen programs to fulfill our needs like CCleaner, IMGburn, Disk Defrag etc. I wanted to make a cumulative installer, i.e. a software package, which could install these programs, but would also be updated easily.

I know about some paid options, but want some freeware alternatives which could do the job. The emphasis is on the ability to easily update the installer!

Hope I am clear in my meaning of what I want.

    We use MSI Package Builder tool (http://www.msi-package-builder.com/) from EMCO (http://www.emco.is)

    Hey Paritosh! It sounds like you might need to $PAY$ for Ninite Pro. (Nooooo!!! hahah)

    Hope this helps! Sounds like you can just download them all once, and then it will only check using the internet to make sure its installing the newest version, if it is and its in the local downloads folder, it will just use that one instead of re-downloading it. That way you only have to download the newest software once.

      the reason i put the emphasis on the ability to 'update' is based on the absence of a fast internet connection...so it takes a lot of time to download all these good apps together over and over again, thats why i dont want web based installers.....i have read about ninite before and really liked it though :)
