In the article ‘Thanksgiving tech support survival kit - 2011 Edition’, Adrian Kingsley-Hughes presents his recommendations for “techies” as preparation for all the holiday-time queries from “non-techies.”

These handy recommendations include several high-capacity USB flash drives, downloading updates in advance, troubleshooting tips, freebies, Windows 7, and security advice. In the latter category, Kingsley-Hughes highlights the Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI).

“A great way to make sure that people keep up-to-date with patches is to install the Secunia PSI 2.0 scanner. This tool not only identifies programs that are insecure or in need of updating, but can also automatically update many of the commonly used applications. Install this now, and next year you might actually get to watch the game next year.”

The Secunia Online Software Inspector (OSI) is also mentioned.
