i installed this 2 weeks ago and never got notified of 1 update which i thought odd given i have hundreds of apps installed...

i runs scan and it says 86/86 patched - so i run file hippos update checker which checks just a small handfull of my apps and it detects FOUR applications out of date that PSI is monitoring...

PSI let me down a year or two back when it was detecting updated apps as out of date and other issues... now its still not working proper

as file hippo only detects free apps i bet theres a lot of updates for other apps that PSI is monitoring..

the file hippos ones
1st. SUPER ANTI-SPYWATE
2nd. SANDBOXIE
3rd. DB POWERAMP
4th. SMART FTP

i opened the apps one by one and indeed FH was correct

also PSI runs at boot...why? if it just scans once per week this could be done by task scheduler rather than taking up memory and boot time every startup for no reason

why is it doing this? this is a major let down, the application is no use at all

Hello.
Without having checked thro' the programs you mention meticulously....psi should notify you of any security updates, but will not inform you if the updates are bug fixes/cosmetic enhancements etc.. psi is a vulnerability checker not a general updater.
If you don't require Secunia to run at boot you should configure it differently in Configuration/Settings and run a manual scan once a week if that suits your purposes better.
Hope this helps....regards,
