I had 4 programs with this message beside them, though three were up to date anyway, plus the Flash Active X I mentioned in my earlier thread.

On fixing that issue, I still had three programs, all apparently up to date, but with that message.

On choosing the Manual Update on one of them, it told me I was up to date (as I had thought I was), and the warning then disappeared from all three programs.

Something not quite right here, I think.

Hi,

The easiest route is probably to reinstall the PSI.

However, more specifically you can try going to Control Panel -> Administration -> Services, and ensuring that "Secunia update Agent" and "PSI Update Agent" are both set to "Started" and "Automatic".

Hope this helps.
