When I run the scan; says there are 6 programs that need my attention. I am not a advanced user I do not know about patching and how do I find out which programs Sceunia is talking about?Also what do I do to correct the problem(s)?

Firstly, U have posted claiming U are using the CSI Beta version. Is that correct or are U using PSI?

What OS are U using? XP SP3? Vista SP1 or Windows 7?

Morning. If you switch to Advanced you will be able to gain more information...it is not overly difficult. The six programs are all insecure(needing patching/updating?); or some are End of life ?
If you click on the + sign alongside each entry, it will expand to expose more detail....the file path/tech details, so on and so forth. If you are uncertain of how best to proceed from there; make a note of any info and
post back to the forum with your queries.
Missed that point about the CSI, Maurice ! Thanks....it's woken me up a bit !!
