I run Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and use version of PSI. The good news is that today Firefox 16.0 shows up in the scan results, but neither the Active X nor the plug-in version of the Adobe Flash Player shows up today. I have the latest versions of both flash players installed, but I rely on PSI to tell me if my flash players are insecure.

I realize PSI is a free program, but I'm finding it harder and harder to rely on it when programs keep disappearing and reappearing on an alarmingly frequent basis.

@wr I'm aware of and have contributed to the thread.

This is the first time that I can remember that the Adobe Active X Flash player has disappeared as well from the scan results. Unfortunately, the Adobe Flash plug-in player disappears from the scan results quite frequently.

Secunia have confirmed by email that the "missing programmes" issue has been fixed.

I have tested it against PSI versions - - & & can confirm that is the case including the display of Flash.

A full PSI rescan is required to achieve the results.
