This may sound really stupid but I cannot automatically update anything that PSI finds due to the message: "unable to locate appropriate web browser".
Just what is appropriate? I've checked settings and there appears to be no mention of this. I would think that between IE, Chrome and Safari (and more on some of my systems) SOMETHING would be "appropriate".

Hello.
Although psi relies/is dependant upon settings within IE to work....the browser which you want it to open links in may be another.....it may be a matter of you resetting your default browser.
Hope this helps.....regards,

Hi ,

Apart from M$ updates which require/use IE , then the PSI "auto-update" facility does not "need" a browser ; however , the other programme updates will try to select your default browser or at least what Secunia/the PSI reads as your default .

This FAQ gives you info on where and what they are looking for :-

Does that help ??
