I have the "Show detailed program changes" setting checked. However, the system tray popup balloon does not show any program names. It just displays what's occurred (ex. program added, program deleted) followed by a colon . . . and that's it.

Hi ,

I and others have the same "bug" which (I believe) has been noted by Secunia support ; so hopefully it will be fixed in the next version . It is extremely annoying to be told of a change and not have the slightest idea what has happened - apart from guessing :eg: when a programme has just silently updated and the message comes just after you have observed the update . Usually it is the reverse and that is grrrr :(

Take care

Anthony

Secunia need to fix how PSI behaves when the servers aren't available first.

It's bad enough 'losing' 157 programs - the idea that these might also be listed one by one in the tray icon popup as it happens fills me with dread :-)

I have the bug too.

It is especially annoying for Firefox Add-on Tests. The new Firefox4beta7 has no status bar anymore, which makes many add-ons useless or unusable. So I removed the lot of them and took the opportunity to test some more. For every added, removed or updated add-on PSI popped up a useless balloon message. Not the balloon itself is annoying, but that it has no detailed info in it, even though it should “show detailed program changes” – oh the irony.

The occasional "100+ programs have been removed" balloon is vexing too and it produces the impression that PSI is unreliable.

Thank you for pointing out this issue in the PSI 2.0 beta. We are trying to get it fixed in a new release.
