OSI has worked properly for me over the last year or so but recently, it scans and detects insecure versions of programs, with no errors detected, but the space where the "Results" should appear remains empty.

This has been happening consistently over the last month or so on three different computers.

Help, please...

Thanks for the very prompt reply. The fix worked... in Windows Explorer. I normally use Chrome. The fix didn't work there, though I've always used OSI successfully in Chrome in the past. BTW, OSI consistently tells me Chrome needs to be updated when in fact it is up to date.

Thanks again.

Hi,

If the OSI runs under one browser, problems in other browsers will be specific to that browser, and probably not relate to your installation of Java. One thing you could try is clearing temporary internet files.

About chrome. The Chrome update has a bad habit of leaving behind old versions of itself. It installs in a directory named after it's current version, thus creating a new folder for every update. The PSI detects all of these.

Our new Technology Preview features "Zombie files", that is, flagging of these obsolete old versions.

Hope this helps.

OK, I deleted browsing data manually in Chrome even though I use CCleaner daily - OSI still not showing scan results in Chrome.

I'll just run OSI in Explorer in the future if it continues to not work in Chrome.

Thanks a lot Emil.

I had the same problem when using Google in Vista but found it works if I open the page for scan using IE Tab extension in Google. Shows all results as detected.
Hope this helps other Google users.

Sorry, I meant to say Google Chrome! I love the Chrome browser and am glad to see Secunia online scan works now when I use the IE tab.
