No more update probs with IE and Flash ! And some saving of some space !
I'm gonna manage without the shiny bits in the psi Overview, and let Chrome dev and Canary build do it for me ! No need of the Adobe uninstaller either.....I must be two progs less vulnerable?! I havn't been bitten....it's more like I've been kissed ?!

Hey Mogs ,

You know that the PSI still uses the embedded part of IE , I never know just how accessible it remains , as such , to the bad guys .

You can run IE out of Chrome using the IE Tab ; that does expose the browser to any/all IE vulnerabilities and the bad guys . You need it to get M$ updates or maybe you don't in Vista .

If you are not using IE then the ActiveX Flash exposure should be limited ; it is also patched (as of now) so of equal vulnerability to NPAPI or the embedded in Chrome .

Be brave set the PSI controls for the sun/auto-updates of Flash ActiveX and get your shiny things back , you know you'll miss them :)))

Anthony

Don't know anything 'bout an IE tab in Chrome Anthony !! Is it another extension ?
I took the decision to uninstall the IE Flash on the grounds of space/efficiency on my lappy....and Secunia's advice regarding running unnecessary progs. No, it's not worth being brave for a couple of shiny bits.....it might be, if it was additional armour ?!! Don't tell me......you've already tried Canary build Chrome ?
