The free version of Secunia PSI does not identify which version I'm using when I open it. When I click on the lower right hand of the opening window "New Version of PSI..." it takes me to the PSI setup window. I don't mind doing this since I do this about 1x month, but PSI does not show what the latest version is, or if I should update whatever my version is. Can you fine tune your graphics to show the version when I open the program & also indicate the latest (stable) version(s) one should have when one clicks on "New version of PSI..."?

If you right click on the icon in your notification area and then click on "about secunia PSI", it will tell you what version. If you install a later version, make sure you exit the one you have, or you'll get a WIN32 error message. The new install will uninstall the older version.

Thank you alleycat61 for your reply. However, not being very computer savvy, I don't understand what you mean about "right click on the icon in your notification area ... " such as what notification area & where is the icon? When I open up your web page, I don't see your icon or any "notification area."

On my computer screen a "bar" runs along the very bottom of the screen ; in the left corner is the green block with Start on it ; in the right corner is my clock and next to it little symbols called "icons". If you are only just getting to grips with your computer you might get a friend to help you with terms and how to do some basic things , such as using icons and "tip menus" which show up when you right - click on lots of things (icons included).
Concerning PSI , in the bottom right corner of the main page is your version. V1.0.0.4 is the last "stable" version. Later numbers are Beta versions (still being tested & developed) , the latest is v1.0.0.7.
If , instead ,this space says there is a newer version it means that Secunia thinks it might be better for you , that after all is part of their job in keeping you up to date. It"s up to you whether to follow their offer of an update .
If you are unsure of computing things , don't worry we are all still learning and at this stage v1.0.0.4 may suit you better.
PS: alleycat and I are just users of PSI and don't work for Secunia. Their staff do follow this Forum.

Many thanks to both alleycat & Anthony Wells. I found the Secunia icon in the notification area after I remembered I had hidden the extra icons some time ago. The new version (1.0.0.4) has the current file version number listed on its main vulnerability page that is a very helpful change from the older version. The old one(s) didn't. Thanks again!
