Category 3 Threat and has an update to fix it, but when the update is installed, it doesn't fix the problem...I even have tried restarting the computer after the update installation completion, but still no change.

HI PCGeek7999 - and welcome to Secunia. The technical guys here will sort out your problem but they will need more info.

Which program has the Cat 3 threat against it? To find that info, you need to be in Advanced Mode. This is shown on the main PSI window - top right-hand side. If it's coloured blue and underlined, just click on it.
Next find the program with the threat, click on the '+' sign, copy the location and post it here, with the name of the program.

So your next post should be something like:

Adobe Reader 7x version detected 7.1.3.156
Installation Path
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 7.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe

So please post this info (something like the above) and you'll be helped quickly!.

(Clicking on the "Download Solution" button - just below "Installation Path" - usually resolves the problem but with some issues such as Adobe Reader/Flash you have to uninstall the old program first. There are many posts on these, with some excellent solutions & addvice from Maurice Joyce and others.

Hoping this helps.

I think U are suffering from the aftermath of a Secunia server "wobbly".

Uninstall PSI.
Reboot.
Reinstall from here: http://secunia.com/

Run a full PSI scan.

Hopefully the problem is history.

If this post has solved your problem could you please select the ACCEPT option. This will lock the thread and stop you & I from receiving unnecessary update emails.

Sorry to hear a reinstallation of PSI did not work.

Have U looked at all these threads on the issue?

Also my version of <title of this thread goes here> is Service Pack 3, if that helps...

The other threads aren't exact copies of my problem, therefore they are deemed not useful to me.

I assumed this entry from U

"It has the Download Solution but it doesn't fix the problem, sorry, you were not helpful at this."

was in reply to my post indicating U should reinstall PSI which has cured this problem in the past.

Well, you assumption was not well thought out as I added a indication to that message that said, "In reply to: taffy078"

I am not wasting anymore of my valuable time reading your silly comments.

U are calling yourself a GEEK - sort it out yourself by trawling the Forum or, if U really are a Geek U should be able to do it yourself using Belarc.

Hi PCGeek7999:

Sorry we're off on the wrong foot.

I see my XP Pro needs updates, Haven't had time to check the machine with XP Home as yet. It will be Sunday afternoon (central daylight savings time, US) before I'm able to be back.

I will subscribe to this thread. If no one is available sooner, I will be happy to sort this out with you then.


regards;

Fred

I wasn't offering the solution - I leave that to those that know their stuff, such as Maurice.

I was simply explaining what info they would need to be able to help you!

Perhaps your "you were not helpful" came out in a different way to what you intended?
