Well, I just changed the allowed options under NoScript 2.6.9.11, and it erased my entire explanation, so here goes again. What price anonymity? Okay, so when I try to update an Adobe product, it always gives new challenges. The worst is updating Adobe AIR, which Secunia tells me it is updating, but somehow never reaches an end, no matter how long I leave it running. I find that Adobe products are in two places under C:\\Program Files (x86), one is under Adobe subdirectory, where my old PhotoShop lives with Flash Player and Reader 11.0, and the other is \common files\Adobe AIR\Versions\1.0\Adobe AIR.dll, which right clicking tells me is updated version 16.0.0.245, but Secunia says is 15.0.0.356, so what gives? Why is it such a complication? Is it the NoScript? Should I move Adobe AIR under the Adobe subdirectory? Curious.

Thanks for writing, Anthony!
Right clicking for "Show Details" gives me \common files\Adobe AIR\Versions\1.0\Adobe AIR.dll, and if I right click on Air.dll, the it tells me it is the updated version 16.0.0.245, but Secunia says is 15.0.0.356. But today I get on Secunia at work and the AIR is now accepted and the Flash must be updated, where previously it had Adobe AIR as still needing update. Hopefully when I get home that will be the case with my home computer as well. Odd. I had rebooted the home computer to see if that was the problem, but had same message of needing to update Adobe AIR.

Hi John ,

Have you now overcome the cyber mystery that occurs between Adobe and your home PSI ??

EDIT:Sometimes a full rescan is needed rather than/as well as a reboot .

Well, other than the fact that it still says today what it said yesterday, that it is updating Adobe Flash, both 16.x and NAPI, and Oracle Java JRE1.7x/7.x (regular and 64 bit) and 8.x, well, I'm just fine. It doesn't update them, it seems, and I must find their update site and do it manually, which is alright, but it often fouls up. Especially Adobe, where the update install will crash. Just wondered if there was something to do about the difference between what it says it's doing, and what ultimately I must do instead.
Thank you for your kind attention,
Jkellymdmph
