"Outdated" Software


Recommended Posts

I am a long-time Advanced SystemCare user. I recently purchased a new PC, and one of my first installations was putting this software on my computer, as usual.

When I ran the full scan, the software told me that I had outdated software (VLC Media Player). Since I have the free version of ASC15, I was prompted ot manually update the software, which doesn't bother me. I clicked the Update link, was brought to the download page of the VLC website, and I downloaded the latest version. This is where things get frustrating. After installation, I ran the ASC15 scan again, and I was still told that the software was not up to date. I opened the VLC Media Player and chose the "Check for Updates..." option to which I was greeted with a "You have the latest version of the VLC media player" message. Once again, I did another ASC15 scan, and once again I was told that VLC Media Player is outdated. At this point I know that ASC15 is wrong, not me.

I wouldn't mind so much if I could just clear the "outdated software" notification, but I can't. So now I'm stuck being notified of a needed update without a way to resolve it.

Any advice or explanation for why this is happening?
