Hello.
Is this the reaction you are referring to :-

When I try to suggest a program the PSI shows 'C:\FakePath' (or similar) instead of the file's location. Why is this?
This is because https://psi.secunia.com is not added to 'trusted sites' as per section S3 of our FAQ. Without this configured, your system blocks the PSI from uploading the required file information from your system.

Are U using the latest version (2.0.0.3001) of PSI?

If not, try a download & install from here:

I'm quite sure that i completed all the advised solutions to the fake pathway problem including adding PSI to my trusted sites in IE9. I downloaded the software from the Home site so I assumed it was the lastest version. After much reading of googled sites about security breaches I have decided to uninstall and bookmark sites that post current Tech news about the latest software patches and updates. I enjoy the reading and won't have to worry about open portals and crackers.
Thanks for the timely response, Security is fun!

Have you changed the Trusted Zone settings from their defaults? In particular, is Protected Mode turned off?
