    Gave up on Secunia when it went to auto updates. FileHippo.com Update Checker works best for me.

    Yes, it does enable Windows Update automatically unfortunately.

    That would have lead to users having Skype installed without permission as happened today to users with Windows automatic updates enabled.

    I don't think so; PSI isn't used by corporations and only corporations were affected by that WSUS glitch.

    This is much better than the Beta of PSI 3.0 (which I had to uninstall); it now has settings, history etc. and so I will stick with 3.0 over 2.0.

    I don't like the new interface at all. It's totally dumbed down. No info on what is wrong with a program (no distinction between end of life and unsafe versions?).

    That's because end of life versions are unsafe!

    That's not their decision to make.
    Anyway, seems the UI dumbing down is becoming pervasive .
