If I select PSI auto updates, when do the updates occur? For example, are updates performed only at night when the computer is not being used? Or might the update kick in during the day when I'm in the middle of something? Thanks.

Hi,

The Auto-updates are scheduled as soon as the PSI becomes aware that you are missing a patch (ie. when you run scan).

However, to prevent the PSI from disturbing your workflow, it will perform a check before installing, such as whether or not the program is running, or a certain file is locked. This should prevent auto-updates from interfering with normal program usage.

Hope this helps.
