When I first started using psi over a year ago. this didn't happen as often. I apply a solution, it installs, I re-scan, and the problem threat still shows.. I try to install the solution again and I get a message that it was already installed.. is that a glitch with psi?

thanks, John

Hello.
As a general rule; tho' you update programs, the older version/file isn't always automatically removed; and it is this that Secunia continues to detect even if still residing in the Recycle bin. One instance of this is Chrome....which you may or may not be using....which always leaves behind the previous version which has to be manually deleted.
If you have any problems removing the insecurity detected; please quote the file path to same, together with psi version and Operating System to the forum.
Being more specific will enable someone to help you.

psi versions 1.5.0.1 and 1.5.0.2

Use the Advanced interface...or switch to it ( Simple/ Advanced..top right of psi panel ).

1/. Click on the + sign alongside the programme to expand it.
2/. Click again on Tech Details in the Toolbox to confirm the installation path of the detected file/prog. 3/.Post the Installation Path back to the forum if you are uncertain how best to proceed.

psi version 2.0 Beta

Go to Results from the Dashboard

1/. Click on the + sign alongside the file.
2/. This will reveal the file path.
3/. Post the info back to the forum if uncertain how best to proceed.

When updating Microsoft Applications, it is a good idea to keep in mind that some Microsoft Updates do not "kick in" until after a reboot. Therefore, it is recommended to try following this procedure when installing Microsoft Updates:

1) Check Microsoft Update: install all security-related patches
2) Reboot
3) Repeat step 1: repeat step 2 if anything was installed at this step
4) Run a full rescan with the PSI

Hope the foregoing is of some help....regards,
