PSI v3 on my XP desktop started auto-updating Adobe Air & Firefox four hours ago - and it' still showing "updating".

I closed Secunia and reopened it but it's still the same.

I'm concernec that if I go the the Adobe & Mozilla sites and update from there, will this clash with the auto-updates tyhat are running.

My Win7 laptop updated with no problems.

Anyone else out there (especially XP users) having this problem?

It does that. SPS packaging goes on forever whatever OS you use or whatever the speed of your PC/internet connection is.

Why not use the spreadsheet & switch off the horror story?

@ Maurice: when I get my new PC I certainly will.

Well, I manually updated the two programs and rescanned. 100% - yippee but . . . those two blasted programs are still showing as "updating".

I closed PSI and went to reopen via the red icon at the bottom of my screen. Failed again so I've just added to the 'Small Business' thread.

My problem now is that whilst we can get to this forum from the scan results screen, can we get to the scan results screen from here?!

Same problem on an XP Laptop. Un-installed and re-installed PSI still the same. This is on ALL identified updates MS and Adobe and others, yet manually most have installed. So what's the problem Secunia? Or anyone else whose solved it? Thanks in anticipation...

@taffy078

It will stop that once you reboot.

I've just had an interesting journey. I rebooted and then clicked on the Secunia icon - it appeared twice in WIndows Task Manager Application and again both failed to respond.

I went to Secunia Home Page and when I completed the log-on window, instead of logging me in. it said "you have logged out successfully". Tried again - same result but this time it took me to my profile screen from where I got to here.

So Maurice, I can't get to the blasted Scan Results screen to see if rebooting worked and I still can';t find a way to go from the forum to that screen. It seems to be a one-way track.

I've emailed Support again.

I've had enough so I'm off to read a book.

PS Maurice - what you're saying is to correct the Auto-update "updating" on the Results screen, I can reboot - which if I could actually reboot would take a longer time than manually updating/using your route.

Getting to be a farce now. That's probably another -1 score! ;o)

BAck tonight - perhaps
