This morning PSI 3.0 popped up a window saying "You have a program that needs a manual update". When I opened PSI to investigate I saw that Google Chrome 20.x was being updated automatically. The automatic update completed correctly and no manual intervention was necessary, in spite of the PSI notification to the contrary.

Hi Patrick ,

Thatr might have been Google's own silent updater running rather than the PSI's SPS installer ; this thread covers a similar situation for Flash :-

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/129...

Is your PSI 3.0.x set for "auto-updating" ??

Have you used the "auto-update" and therefore selected tbe version language before this happened ??

Anthony,

Yes, PSI 3.0.x on my machine is set for "auto-updating" and the "auto-update" function has been working correctly.

After reading the thread that you suggested I'm certain that the pop-up window I saw was indeed from Google's silent updater and not from PSI.
.
C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\FlashInstall.lo g does not refer to any Secunia file. Additionally, as I mentioned before, when I closed the pop-up window and opened PSI I saw that Google Chrome 20.x was in the process of being updated automatically.

Thanks for your response and the clarification.

Patrick
