I can't seem to find the option to enable the Secure Browsing Tab in the new PSI 3.0
Also, after two scans both Firefox and IE9 are not listed anywhere in the scan results. Is the new PSI 3.0 not keeping up with browser security?
Thank you for any response....

That useful tab has been dumped in version 3 like many other useful troubleshooting tools.

Thank you...I agree it was a useful tool and I will also miss the other features that helped with trouble shooting. I also don't care for the icon view, I always use a list view in most apps and programs.

I did do a third scan and am now seeing my browsers.

Are they truly secure though. I ran 2.0 yesterday and both Firefox and IE9 were insecure because of Adobe Flash. I can tell you I realize when browsers are insecure you surf at your own risk but, I did try to avoid websites with a lot of activity such as streaming media, game sites, etc. No way to avoid them all though, unless you don't use the internet. I'm very disappointed with not knowing if my browsers are safe. Let's face it this is where all problems begin !

You can always drop back to version 2. Many others are doing likewise.

The download links are below my Signature Block if you elect to do that.

If I go back to PSI 2.0 will I need to uninstall 3.0 before doing so? If I don't uninstall 3.0 will I end up with two versions on my system?

Thank You

@bonnie23

When you install version 2.0 psi it should detect the previous version and remove if you so wish. I did the same some time ago with a beta version and all running well.
Hope you don't mind my having "intruded" on your thread .......Regards.........

I uninstalled 3.0, then installed 2.0. I don't trust most programs over writing especially from new version back to older version.

Firefox is name of browser from Mozilla vendor.
Infernal Exploder is from Microsoft.

I see stuff listed by name of software vendor, not by name of their software.
It might be nice if there was an option to sort the info by familiar software name, instead of name of vendor which publishes it.
or maybe have different colors for familiar names like FF and IE.
