The new installation of PSI shows up with red x's where icons ought be. It keeps insisting I don't have Adobe Flash for IE (well, for one thing, I use Firefox, and do use the rendering engine to run IE tabs within Firefox, which allows Windows Update to run just fine) BUT I have downloaded and installed Adobe Flash several times, yet PSI insists it is not present and will not therefore show anything but red X's.

Any ideas how to fix this? Short of dumping PSI and staying with the online scanner, which works just fine by the way. Thanks for any suggestions! :^) gene

The enclosed link explains it all. In short PSI uses the IE settings for Flash player-& yes the version #'s are the same-10.0.22.87-but trust me you need the IE version the FF version won't work correctly as you've discovered & so did I when I first installed the PSI. Here's the link to the thread: http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/160... good luck & regards, wr

That only worked halfway. I uninstalled psi, booted up IE, got the adobe flash for it, reinstalled psi, and now have graphs and icons on the bottom half of the page, but the top is still full of red x's. I don't have any end of life or unsecure programs, which I already knew, I just like software to behave as it should. Only one of those links you posted actually still worked, by the way. I'm okay for now I guess. Though I am not bothering with IE 8, I like my Firefox. :^)

Hi -

I am new to this thread.

I am using psi 1.0.0.4.

I am using FF 3.10 and IE8, and both have the latest and correct version of flash.

And all of a sudden I am getting x's instead of images in psi.

I do not see n options in ie8, whether there is any way to configure what flash is doing or not, enabled or not?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Edit 1 - I am at the adobe website - setting my global storage options, global privacy options, etc. Does anyone here know how these need to be set so that psi will correctly show images. Is there someone from Secunia monitoring these forums? Can we get technical support from Secunia for PSI?

edit 2 - secunia.com is not even listed in the adobe settings panel as a site that has been visited either for storage settings or for privacy settings. If one did not know that psi uses IE flash - it would not be apparent from the adobe global settings panel (which is the same no matter which browser I access it from, FF or IE).

So is there another setting within IE - that also controls Flash?

I actually had to close out Firefox, boot up IE and go to adobe's site and reinstall flash. They have an uninstaller too, which I ran first, that removed flash from Firefox as well. So I installed it in IE, which, mostly worked, as I said. But when I booted Firefox back up, it told me it needed new updates, I let it find them and install them and then Secunia's site worked just fine again from Firefox too. Hope this helps. :^)

Hmm, I am trying.

I deinstalled Flash.

I reinstalled flash for IE8, and for Firerox, Opera.

Still no go, red x's are still there.

I deinstalled, and reinstlled psi, version 1.0.0.4

I rebooted once or twice in there.

I still have red x's.

I also do not see any support on these forums other then the beta forum.

I am dismayed at this point. Spent a lot of time on this.

Maye I'' just wait until the next version of psi, and just live wih the red x's fo rnow.
