    I've looked everywhere but can't see it.
    Ummm, it's right there on their website.

    I did not like it because they totally changed the front-end/UI and made it almost totally automatic without giving the user many, if any, options as to how it works or updates. If it finds something out of date, V2.0 gives you research and install options. V3. does not.

    V3 still works and does what it is intended to do, I just don't like programs that think I am too stupid to make my own decisions.

    Do not know if this is helpful....but in Secunia PSI 3.0 > settings> you can UN-check auto update

    Not sure if this is to update Secunia PSI 3.0 automatically or the programs

    I think that is for the programs it is monitoring. I don't let anything update itself, except malware definition/signature files.

    Hi abseh
    Thanks for your update - nothing for me yet but from your experience, guess it will come eventually.

    Re: Secunia, as a rule I also don't allow automatic updates except for malware.

    Hi Digerati
    Ummm, it's right there on their website.
    Yes, I know, I meant I couldn't see an update link on the interface anywhere.

    As v.3 has the changes you describe, think I'll also stick with v.2 and not bother upgrading.

    Oh, you mean 2.0's UI? You are right, there's nothing there.

    Well, I should note the new version works, it does what it is supposed to do, and many users like it. Also, it was easy to uninstall V3 and roll back to V2. So you still might want to give it a try anyway to see for yourself.

    Just thought I'd post the conclusion of this problem, for anyone else who may be having the same issues :

    As of this morning, Secunia was still reporting that XML Core Services needed updating but there was still no update offered by Microsoft. MS Update just had two critical updates but having installed them, when I ran Secunia again it still gave the same result. This time, however, when I clicked on the Secunia link to the MS solution, I was offered a file download : MSXML 4.0 SP3 Parser (not offered it before).

    Downloaded this, ran Secunia again expecting the scan to show my system fully updated but instead, this time Secunia showed 3 different versions of MSXML Core Services as being outdated. Ran MSUpdate again and then was offered another critical update for XML SP3. This seemed to do the trick as Secunia is now showing a 100% score.

    All a bit convoluted for me but hope this explanation assists someone!

    Which version of Secunia? Is it a "security" update? How long has the update been out?
