Re: orange warning triangle on support assistant icon on PC

Hi thanks but I had already done that,there were no updates or messages. I uninstalled the support assistant twice and reinstalled but still had  the warning triangle after the first reinstall so after uninstalling again, restarted and cleared all cookies etc with ccleaner. I reinstalled and updated the support assistant itself,this then showed one update which I did and it seems to be ok now
