I just did the survey and it seemed to be asking if I would recommend it to a non-tech user. I said no because the results still often require technical expertise. A good example is the many threads about the end of life 2003 PowerPoint viewer. The program flags it and if you do the repair you get the 2007 viewer but the old viewer remains in place. One had to find it an manually delete it.

The solutions offered are often like that. It would be nice if the solid solutions could be shown and more complicated ones either rated or hidden unless asked for.

Similalrly for end of life problems. Often these are not much of a risk because of the ever decreasing number of them in use. Hackers go after the big market share items to maximize their return. Perhaps list them but in a seperate category that does not muddy up the security waters.

I fully agree with you. I too should not advice PSI to somebody without any knowledge in using a pc. I myself perform maintenance activities by using TeamViewer for family members who haven't sufficient knowledge. I do not consider myself as an expert but have enough experience to perform software updates and work with PSI. And in case I run into troubles there is this Forum with a lot of experienced users and Secunia experts who help me to solve my problems.
