Hi peony99

It appears that all replies to this advisory are marked with a negative relevancy score, but let's live dangerously - I'll try to offer a small piece of advice to your specific problem. (Sometimes it's better to start a new thread, than tag onto a Secunia advisory).

A couple of recent issues, including XP Home and my own Java problem, have been resolved by upgrading PSI from v.1.5.0.0. to 1.5.0.1., by simply removing Secunia PSI from add/remove and downloading the latest aforementioned version.

As a user for quite a while, I'm guessing that you could still be using the old version of PSI, like I was - if not, I can't help further.

This may not apply to the above advisory, but may be helpful to you.
