Secunia PSI reports that Windows Vista (Version detected is blank) is insecure. Installation path is reported as N/A. Clicking on "Download Solution" opens Windows Update which reports that Windows is up to date. Closed Secunia PSI, restarted and then reran scan with same results. What's going on?

You need to update Secunia to version 1.0.0.3.

This fault will then disappear.

Actually, it is still present in that version. I believe UAC being turned off is the culprit here.

The latest version of PSI is 1.0.0.3 as shown by Maurice Joyce-if you ain't got it get it- Sometimes when updating, a program doesn't delete/overwrite the old entries. To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, please follow these guidelines using the
advanced interface:
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
* Click on the entry of the program to expand it.
* Click on Technical details to see the installation path of the detected file.
* Remember the installation path and close down the menu.
* Click Open Folder and locate the detected file.
You can then manually delete these remnants-reboot-rescan & hopefully all is well. Good luck & regards. wr

Secunia-would appreciate something in your blog concerning this-this is pissing me off. Clicking on the technical details do not provide any indication of what the Secunia program is identifying as being the culprit.

I am happy to report that whatever was causing Secunia to report "insecure" programs on Win Explorer 7.0 and Vista has been apparently resolved without any effort on my part. It would be nice for someone to acknowledge what was causing it-and I do not believe that it had anything to do with the Win update process.
