I've been here a while this morning (UK) and all was well.

(1) I then decided to change my profile. That page now requires you to re-enter your password. It didn't before, did it?

(2) It won't accept what I thought was my password. Is there a "forgotten your password?" facility? I couldn't find one.

(3) So I decided to start again. I logged out - I don't usually - and closed Secunia. When I returned, I found that my scan history had gone. The screen tells me that:
"Cannot display graph, as Adobe Flash Player does not appear to be installed in Internet Explorer on your computer, or the version installed is older than version 8.x. Install Flash for Internet Explorer"
Flash has disappeared from my PC - it was only yesterday that I went through the process of uninstalling it and reinstalling the latest version. I re-instal it from filehippo and try again. I'll also check my laptop to see if it's happened on that.

I've not uninstalled it - has this happened to anyone else?

FLASH:

I've reinstalled Flash (both IE & Firefox versions) on my desktop from filehippo.
I now have my history back (the bar chart in Advanced/Historic Development).

But Flash isn't showing in my patched list, nor in any other tab.

Anyone else having this? (Could the latest Flash be 'flaky'?)

EDIT: updated

FLASH:

Again, I totally removed Flash, closing/exiting Secunia, IE & Messenger (as prompted by the Adobe uninstaller).

I then installed Flash again and everything is now working fine. The only thing I did differently was not to instal the RC7 version, but the (later?) one without the RC7 tag.

Normally, both Secunia & Norton flag up new installations in bubbles. That didn't happen this time.

Flash problem resolved! NB: BUT HOW WAS FLASH UNINSTALLED?

PASSWORD: Although the profile page rejected my password, it accepted my profile change! No immediate rush now but if someone could point me in the direction of 'password change' that would be appreciated.

EDIT: added NB about Flash

Flash has its own uninstaller. Provided U close anything using Flash (Browsers/PSI/Windows Messenger) it uninstalls the old & installs the new.

Works like a dream if U followed my script.

Have U been trying to use the PSI auto updater at some stage?

Hi Maurice. I had your script in front of me! But by uninstalling first I didn't follow it! I'll remember that for the future.

I've not touched the auto-updater - it must have run when I first logged on this morning on the programs that I'd ticked.

A few others have posted that it auto-ran for them too, and worked without problems. (e.g. Leendert Kip - @ 11th Jun, 2010 17:32 in the "PSI Auto-Update Technology Preview (TP) available" thread.

I find it strange that Flash should "auto-uninstall" and that the entries that were in the 'Auto Updates' tag yesterday should disappear like this. Could it have happened because of the Auto Updates?

I'm going on holiday tomorrow so won't be able to check on Monday if Jakob Balle picks this up.

I'll post in PSI 2.0 TO for him to take a look at this thread?
