I received a notification from Secunia was calling for an update to firefox. I clicked to update the program and now it's hung in "update mode". It keeps on applying the same update to firefox and I cannot get it to stop. I have shut the computer down and rebooted several times and it continuously keeps applying this same update. The only thing I know to do is uninstall the Secunia program unless someone out there has a better solution to this problem. Any help would be appreciated...QUICKLY PLEASE!

You do not give any information with regards to versions of programs you are referring to.

You could try reading thro' the following forum threads for previous advice given to users in similar circumstances....:-
http://secunia.com/community/forum/all_threads/?fo...

If you have already manually updated FF ( which, I believe is the preferred method by some on the forum )....it may be the case that the previous/older version is still being detected by psi....and it continues to try to update. If you can remove that older file it should remove the problem.

The Secunia PSI has detected a program somewhere on my computer, but where?

To locate a detected program via the Secunia PSI, please do the following.

Secunia PSI 3.x
Right-click on the software you want to check. Select "Show details". Double-click the file location.

Secunia PSI 2.x
Go to "Scan Results" and click the “+” character next to the relevant program. Then click the yellow “Open folder” icon.

Secunia PSI 1.x
In the upper right corner click "Advanced" and "Ok" to the message box. Go to the tab where the relevant program is currently showing up. Click the “+” character next to the relevant program and then click “Open Folder”.

If you have followed the steps above you should now see the folder on your computer where the detected program is located. The Secunia PSI has also showed you the exact installation path and the name of the detected file. To examine the file you can right-click on it and choose Properties. The tabs should now show you the same information that the PSI is detecting including product name, product version etc.

Hope the foregoing is of some help........regards......mogs........
