every time I select the "Install Solution" feature or use the "Visit the Community Forum" tag in the Secunia PSI software I get the following error message:

Unable to open an appropriiate web browser for the requested URL

The only choice is to click "OK" and then I get another message:

An error occurred while attempting to open the specified URL

This all started back when PSI informed me that Google Crome was in need of an update. Since I never used Google Chrome (and was suprised to see it was loaded on my PC) I went to the Windows program features and uninstalled Google Chrome.

Every since then I get this strange error in PSI. No other programs act like this only PSI.

Please help!, Thanks.

Hello.
There's every likelihood that psi was using Chrome, as it was probably your default browser. If you havn't assigned that status to another browser, it may be causing the problems.
I would suggest that you first have a good read thro' a section of the FAQ's here :-

Hope this helps.......regards,
