Have moved to PSI3 Beta.
(1) Scans continually show Active X Update required, despite me having already updated Chrome using 'About', when Active X is automatically updated by that program
(2) One of your web pages shows a 'Settings (and something else)' box, but this does not appear in my installation.

Thank you

If you are referring to Flash Player, Chrome does not use the ActiveX. It uses its own version of the NPAPI plugin.
To update the Flash Player ActiveX you need to download it using Internet Explorer from the Adobe website http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
Remember to uncheck whatever additional software Adobe try to foist on you.

The 'Settings' button was introduced in PSI3 Beta 2. This is version 3.0.0.6. You will need to download PSI 3 Beta again if you do not have this version.

As I said in the previous post, you have to browse to the Adobe website with Internet Explorer not Chrome to download the ActiveX.

If you no longer use Internet Explorer, you can uninstall the ActiveX and Plugin for all browsers except Chrome by downloading the Uninstaller from this page:

Sadly, genuine submissions created on this Forum are getting "lost" amongst the sustained spammer attack posts being created.

I have grouped this post & others where Forum members have open questions & comments which should make it easier for Forum readers & helpers to navigate.
