    Hi oldschool –

    How are WD and Brave doing their updates?  If they are creating a new path for the update to execute from, then VS will ping them, it’s just how it works.

    Zemana used to create a randomly numbered folder to drop the update into, and VS always picked it up, quite correctly.  I had to write to Zemana and point out how their behavior looked like malware…  That was their v2.x, but in the v3.x apparently they took notice of my comment.

    Also, I have VS lock down the Users\…\local\temp folder with a silent block.  There’s too much malware likes to install from there.

    Oddly enough, Flash has never given any issues with updating — very well behaved it is!
