I have a Windows XP with service pack 3 on it and Secunia PSI will not open. It downloaded and installed just fine. When I double click on Secunia PSI icon in the lower right corner to run a scan, a white box opens up and then closes. I have un-installed this program several times and re-installed it by re-downloading it from the website. I have this program on 2 other computers (1 Windows XP with SP3 and 1 Windows 7) and it runs just fine. Please HELP.

Hi ,

It is likely that you have a specific XP problem affecting your specific XP system (not all are affected!!)

Make sure you have all your IE settings correct and , most important , that the two specific workarounds (either one or the other or both) are applied as per this FAQ ; scroll down for the XP workarounds :-

Hope that helps . Let us know how you go .
