PSI 3 shows program requires manual update. Screen shows program 'updating' but nothing happens. Is there a way to force manual update?

It will not update MSXML & there are many reported issues on this Forum regarding Flash updating using the "magic" of Secunia.

This will clear MSXML:

MSXML4 was shipped as an independent, downloadable SDK targeted at Independent Software Vendors and third parties. It is an upgrade for but not a replacement to MSXML3 as version 3 still provides legacy features. Versions 6,4 and 3 may be run concurrently.

MSXML 4.0 SP3 is the most recent version released in March 2009. SP2 support expired in April 2010.

The download link (clearly marked MSXML.MSI - 2.0 MB) is here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx...

Please note this SP was released before Windows 7 was produced therefore there is no mention of compatibility - it works flawlessly with Windows 7 on both 32 & 64 Bit systems

Now run Windows Update - there are some additional patches for SP3.

PSI will pick it up as secure with version 4.30.2114.0. on the next full PSI rescan (see below)

Now this for Flash:

1. Download & SAVE these to desktop.

IE & Other Browsers using the Trident Rendering Engine.

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/curren...

& then here, if U have any other type of browser that does not have Flash embedded.

http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/curren...

2. The installer will appear on the desk top. THE IMPORTANT BIT - Before agreeing to install Flash check these programmes are completely shut down (use the Task Manager if necessary (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC) to COMPLETELY EXIT these processes if running)):
a. All Browsers.
b. Windows Messenger.
c. Incredimail.
d. All Adobe Products.
e. PSI - Unless using version 2 or version 3

3. The new install will then remove all old files during the update process.

4. Complete a full PSI rescan & all should be in order.

Optional - Go to Start>Control Panel>click the Flash Player (32 Bit) icon>check the settings are to your requirements.

Update 19 16:24 23/08/2012

@raymerle57

I note you are new to the Forum. This thread is not dealing with Adobe Shockwave therefore is a bit of a hi-jack.

Much better to create your own thread in that @bejam has the option to lock this thread once he has solved his problem which will block communication & protect his mail box from update notifications from others

That said, this will put Shockwave in order:

1. Download & SAVE these to desktop.

1. Shockwave Uninstaller for your OS from the clearly marked link on this web page:
http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates...

2. The latest Shockwave from here:
http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/

3.The programmes will appear on the desk top. THE IMPORTANT BIT - Before activating the desktop downloads check these programmes are completely shut down (use the Task Manager if necessary (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC) to COMPLETELY EXIT these processes if running)):
a. All Browsers.
b. Windows Messenger.
c. Incredimail.
d. All Adobe Products.
e. PSI - Unless using version 2 or version 3

4. Now uninstall then install the latest version.

5. Complete a full PSI rescan.


Update 9 16:31 23/08/2012
