Hi all, I just found I posted in the wrong area, I posted in the PSI, and now just found this thread. SORRY! :(

OK,, I have Secunia PSI V. 1.5.0.2. I also have AVAST! 5x Free edition, and I ran two separate scans, and my Secunia is still not showing it in the programs. As if it doesn't exist. Weird.. Even re-scanning isn't helping, but all the rest of my programs are listed, and showing. Just not this one.

When I had Trend Micro, it showed; Then when I had AVG it showed. Now, this one is not. Doesn't show AVAST at all. I also have PC Tools FW, and it is showing in there. Just thought I'd ask. Seems to me, after running a scan, it should be listed. It isn't..

TIA!!

EDIT: I should have added, I am using Windows XP Pro, SP3

Hi.

I have installed "Avast! Antivirus 5.0.677", wich is the latest version, and it is found correctly.

What version do you have problem with?
to find the version, right click the avast icon in the system tray and click "About Avast!"
