That's good, I didn't update because of that. Yes, it is a good thing for some people if you don't want to be bothered with manually having to install updates, but nonetheless, some people want control over what/when something gets updated.

Is it still that simplified interface? No Secure Browsing tab, etc? I may try it as soon as I make my weekly images. A Guy

I installed V3 Beta 2.
To me, it's better than V3 Beta 1, but i still prefer V2.
If you like icons, V3 Beta 2 may be better than V2.
I prefer the Lists with more details in Version 2, and more control/info for me.

In V3 Beta 2 I see two settings.
- Start On Boot
- Install updates automatically

They are both checked by default.
So PSI auto updated 2 programs upon my "Install/Initial Run"...
I think one update was for ImgBurn as i now have an icon on my desktop.
Just checked, and Imgburn is still not the latest version...

I prefer to review what needs to be updated before some program does an "auto update".
Seems like changing the setting for "Install updates automatically" works...
Changing "Start On Boot" keeps losing my setting changes...
Removed the program from Autoruns and that seems to work.

Yeah, I didn't bother with the latest beta. It just doesn't have all the detail, and options of the older version. I just hope they won't decide this is where we are going, take it or leave it. A Guy
