Whenever I try to use the download solution it fails with the message "Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded"

?? I'm not having a problem with any other download that I know of.

Add https://psi.secunia.com to your Trusted sites.
Control Panel > Internet Properties > Security > Trusted sites > Sites
http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal...

The FAQ is a bit dated. https://psi.secunia.com is sufficient.

Here's complete instructions: I know it says scanning,but try these setting & be sure firewall or browser isn't blocking downloads.

Secunia PSI needs to be able to connect to Secunia servers to complete its scanning. However, if you have configured
the security settings of your Internet Explorer, the Secunia PSI may be prevented from getting the scan results. To receive
your scan results, you need to do some changes to your Internet options.
To do this:
a. Open Internet Explorer.
b. Go to Tools>Internet Options>Security tab.
c. Select the Internet zone and click on the Custom Level button.
d. In Security Settings, go to the Scripting>Active Scripting option.
e. Make sure that Active Scripting is Enabled (rather than Disabled or Prompted).
f. Press OK then Yes.
g. Back in the Security tab, select the Trusted sites zone and click on the Sites button.
h. Look at the bottom of the page and take the tick from the box marked"Require server verification(HTTPS)for all site zones" then type in the following and press the Add button to add them to the Trusted Zone Sites list:
http:*.secunia.com
https:*.secunia.com
i. Press Close
j. Run the Secunia PSI again to view the scan results
Both sites will now be OK

If using a browser other than IE open Control Panel>Internet Options then follow c. thru j.
