Hi

The Secunia PSI does not remove programs from your computer.

The Secunia PSI simply detected that some programs on your computer was no longer present on your system.

The similar message will appear if the Secunia PSI detects new programs on your system.

I hope this answered your question.

Google Chrome Automatically Updates itself, and the Secunia PSI detected that the old version was removed as a part of that process.

Google Chrome usually leave the 2nd newest version behind in order to perform the silent update.
This update is then removed the next time there is an update.

Let us know if you have any questions or comments.

well Thanks M.hansen for ur reply btw this message happened two days ago but with adobe DLM as i have installed adobe reader two days ago and the dlm is a must in order to download the latest adobe reader but why it tells me it was removed while i have just installed adobe dlm is it the same case as google?

i thought it was some kind of a virus symptoms as i was infected and by avira's support team my laptop was back on the track and they recommended me to install ur software and the matter of fact it's brilliant as it helps u monitoring ur pc and know what is not up to date in order to protect ur self from malwares and threats.

another question why do when i open psi from start menu windows asks me (do you want this program to do changes on ur computer) while when i open it from the taskbar (tray) it opens normally?

thanks a lot

You will probably find that the Adobe Download Manager has gone. It is set up to uninstall itself at the next restart after Adobe Reader is installed.

The Adobe DLM removed message is what I would expect to get the next time I start the computer after installing Adobe Reader or Flash Player.

Windows 7 gives the 'Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer?' message when a standard user starts a program that requires to run elevated to adminstrator rights. If you click the icon in the notification area, the program is already running and you will not get the message.

Yes. That's how it is for me. I thought maybe you were seeing something different because of your UAC settings but it looks like we are both being warned when we start a program with administrator privileges.
