For me nothing ever shows in History. When does the History actually get updated? Is it working for anyone?

Thanks,
Bill

Bill, I have 6 items under history dated from 3/21 to 4/9.

To be honest, I have never looked at it before.

Very strange. I wonder why I'm not seeing anything. It probably isn't that important, but does make me curious.

Thanks,
Bill

History is a list of the items you have updated through the PSI. My list is empty as I never do an update through the PSI; I prefer to do it on my own.

Hope this helps.

That explains it. I also do all my updates outside of PSI. I thought the history would be a history of how protected I am similar to the old bar graph in PSI 2. My confusion. Thanks for the explanation.

You're welcome. You can find the explanation in the help files (just click on "Need help ?" in the PSI).

That's kind of what confused me. The help says:

Click History to display information about the updates installed, and scans conducted, for the programs you have installed on your PC.

So I was expecting to see something about the scans that I have done, but there is nothing in the history despite the fact that I have done numerous scans. It really doesn't say anything about whether or not updates were done withing PSI or outside PSI.

You're right : the help file is not very clear on this (and on other points too)...
I think an updated version of these files would be more than welcome !
