Hey Folks,

I'm trying PSI for the first time, and am having problems. I get a window saying that winzip was unable to locate windows HTML Help viewer. Went to winzip site and used the link to microsoft and found a download for it(sure was old); downloaded,updated windows xp again due to age of file. Didn't change anything. Any help out there?

thanks,
toyvan

You probably did update, however not all updates delete/overwrite the old files. To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, please follow these guidelines using the
advanced interface:
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
* 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.
