PSI displays the following upon opening: "Programs that need updating (2)", Despite "Adobe Flash Player 24.x (ActiveX)" being the only program displayed. From PSI's first page that appears I've tried (1) "Click to update' and (2) "Scan again." Otherwise, I've tried (3)uninstalling Flash Player and downloading, installing and running "Adobe's Latest Version" from Adobe's home site; (4) uninstalling PSI, reinstalling PSI and running it again (5) restarting and (6) powering off, waiting, then powering on again. Nothing works. I'm running W10, v. 1607 on a 2 year old HP Pavilion desktop. PSI has run on this computer perfectly since it was new. Can anyone help me get this updated properly? I need Flash Player for several apps I run. Thank you. Jim Vaughan

Ignore any advice from PSI when dealing with Flash on Windows 10. Microsoft are responsible for updating the Flash Player on Windows 8 & 10 NOT PSI or any other third party vendor.

The normal Windows Update (Patch Tuesday)updates that should have been released yesterday have been delayed to correct an issue. Once released it will update your PC.

If you are concerned switch off Flash in IE and Edge until Microsoft release the patch.

Hope this helps.
