as much as I have fiund this program useful it seems to create regular problems with programs that need updating normally Java. I am grateful for Maurice for regular help but it is frustrating to uninstall a program to find Secunia saying there is still a problem etc! While this is probably my fault I think I will use other updating software which is less technical!

Andy,
I would not throw out PSI altogether. It can be used as a weekly reminder (after a scan) that you could have vulnerable software on your PC that requires your attention. I am not aware of another programme that can do the same job.

If you switch off any PSI automatic updating & stop it from loading at boot it just becomes another nice little tool. All that is required is a reminder to run it whenever to suit you!!


Sorry about the edit/deletion.

I suggest to try Filehippo's updatechecker. It's absolutely not comparable with PSI and easy to use. And, if you don't like it, easy to uninstall. If software on your computer is updated by the vendor you get a warning showing the product, installed version, new version and a download link. Then you can eventually choose for the internal updater of the software. That's necessary if, for example,you use Mozilla Firefox in a non-English language. Filehippo give you a link to the standard English version; the internal updater get your language version.
