I've noted for a while now that Flash Player doesn't auto update with PSI 3.0. If you click on the program from the scan results it says it is but nothing happens. I then go to Adobe site, download the update, unclick the bloatware they expect you to install. It updates to the newest version and PSI 3.0 after a rescan says yes all good again. Are there any logs to see why this is not updating properly within the program? I see there have been problems over the years with PSI dropping its pants (so to speak) updating flash player. Is this something we just have to expect? I appreciate PSI telling me that Flash Player needs updating though. Its always good to know.

Are you referring to your Windows 10 PC?

Users of Windows 8 & 10 do nothing to Update the embedded Flash Player. This thread gives more details https://secuniaresearch.flexerasoftware.com/commun...

Despite the monthly Windows Update being postponed Microsoft issued a patch for Flash on 21st February via windows Update.

OK Thanks ... PSI should likely not provide the update function on the program listing but now I take comfort from knowing it's all in MS capable hands
