PSI didn't complain about Opera 10 beta...it only complains every time about the pgm since it was updated. I have reinstalled the update several times. Anyone else have this problem...and how did you solve it?
I use Win XP on an Acer 1640

|Hello.......I don't have Opera, but I can tell you that Secunia doesn't monitor Beta versions.....nor ,in my case, Dev. channel Chrome.
Stable versions are monitored.
Are you using Secunia with the Advanced interface?
Can you see the Secure Browsing tab?
What is showing in there ?
If you click on the + sign alongside an entry it will expand to reveal further info; the file path to, or an insecurity.
Having up-dated; not all progs remove the older/insecure files automatically; and Secunia will continue to detect them until removed......even if still in the recycle bin.
I hope I've given you enough to chew on for now....but if you have any further problems/queries etc., please return to the forum with as much information as possible. Regards

I can't give you a definitive answer, but can provide the following info, which may in part, help.
As far as I'm aware, I didn't think PSI monitored beta programs, however, this may have changed.
If after updating Opera, it is still showing as insecure, this could be because the update has created a new file at the side of the old (now insecure) one, which PSI is still finding and reporting.
This is sometimes the case with browser updates, and I believe is true of Opera.
You need to use PSI in Advanced mode (top right of PSI page), then click on the insecure tab (probably red). On l.h.s. of the listing for Opera is "[+]" - click on this to reveal Toolbox icons. Click on Open Folder icon to go to the location of the insecure file. If you see numbered versions for the old file, and the new updated file, you can delete the old one - highlight, right click, delete.
If this is the case, you will probably need to re-boot and re-scan PSI for the change to be recognised. It may be also necessary to remove the deleted file from your recycle bin.
EDIT: This reply crossed with the above from @ mogs - but info is basically the same.
Computing is not yet a perfect science - it still requires humans.
