I am curious as to why I had all 4 versions of Net.Framework listed in PSI as insecure in version 1.5.0.2 and was unable to find a solution as there were no updates available or patches - as soon as I updated to try V2.0 beta the problem was resolved. Was it a PSI problem???

Hello.
As the updates sometimes require a couple of tries before they kick in/register....and a reboot; it's likely you set things to rights by rebooting during the install.
Regards,

I have had the security problems for 4 days and it was only resolved when I downloaded PSI V2.0 and ran it - no rebooting involved at all. The security issue was there on the previous version immediately before installing V2.0 but was gone after the rescan.

The core detection engine of psi is fundamentally the same in all versions of psi....it must have been a matter of rescanning and timing.

It is strange as I had rescaned several times after trying different things in the earlier version - I even went back to
1.5.0.1 without success and checked out Raynond's site looking for clues. I was approaching the point of using dotnetfx.

It would be interesting to see what would happen if I go back now to the earlier version 1.0.5.2 to see if the issue comes back

Whereas I'd prefer that all users would progress to the 2.0 Beta and we'd have no need to keep looking backwards......it might be interesting tho' if it were to show a fundamental flaw, or discrepancy between versions.
Are you using XP ?

Lots of XP users have had problems with one version or another, of psi. Some having settled with 2.0 Beta and others having reverted to using 1.5.0.1. Having said that, most of those problems became apparent in the install or operation itself, rather than just a scanning result
There are quite a few threads running on the forum at the moment re .NET problems...they might be worth reading thro'. Having achieved success in having XP with psi 2.0 Beta and no .NET problems....I think I'd be inclined toward the saying, " if it ain't broken, don't try to fix it ".
