Hello,

If i start PSI on boot will it continuously monitor for insecure instances and available patches ?
Psi was for a while activated on my system and visible in my systray, and suddenly i got a popup window warning for an Adobe Reader patch :-).

Thank you for any comment on this (newbie) question ...

There's no continuous monitoring for available patches. That only happens when PSI does a scan, either a manual scan or the one PSI does automatically every week or so.

Hello Alan,

Thank you for your kind reply. I was a bit confused when Secunia remained activated on my system, and when after a short time i was getting a warning. Anyhow Secunia Psi is a great security tool !!!!
