I have not been able to apply patches after scan without having IE 8 close during application of patch. P.K.

Hello.
Your post is rather obscure and lacking in info/detail. Have you managed to patch all/any/one/some of the vulnerabilities that show up in the scan ?
What version of psi are you using....and with the Advanced interface ?
Have you read/checked thro' the FAQ's at :-
http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal... to ensure psi is configured aright ?
Please provide details of the prog/s you are having trouble with, and the file path shown when clicking on the + sign and Tech Details. Hope this is found to be helpful.

Hi mogs, Sorry about the details. They are as follows, Acer Aspire AST 180-UD440A, 4Gb DDR2 Ram, 500Gb WD sata hd_Win7 Pro OS-IE8 running standard PSI simplified. I'm not using the advanced orientation part of program. The problem is that every time I run a scan and then try to apply the solutions I get the message that IE has a problem and is closing and the patch isn't installed. PK/rdr9

Hello again. It's quite a while since I last used psi with the the Simple interface....you needn't be put off by the warning preceding using it in Advanced..it's not as difficult as it may seem. The likelihood is that you will gain access to much more information if you switch to it.
Firstly tho', can you confirm which version of psi you are using ?It's found in the bottom right hand corner of the Overview panel.
Are you sure you've got IE configured correctly as per the FAQ's at :-
http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal... ? psi requres that IE is set as such in order to work properly.
There is more info 'bout how it works here:-

Please try to answer the foregoing questions in order that we may firm up on your situation in order to try and resolve it.Regards

You still have not confirmed that you've configured your IE for Secunia psi.
I notice in other posts that some Windows7 users seem to have had some success by installing version 1.9.0.0.
Maybe worth giving it a try.
