Hello;

I am using Secunia PSI since quite some time and actually like it a lot.
Currently I am on PSI version 2.0.
Win 7 64-bit all up-to-date.

I saw that the tray icon was red and looked. In PSI everything was green.

I let PSI scan the computer and it still says all is green - but the tray icon still is RED.

Any ideas?

TIA
Eike

Maurice,
Thank you for the prompt reply.

My PSI is version 2.0.0.3001 and Auto Update is ON.

In the meantime I have restarted the computer, the tray icon is still red.

TIA

I do not use Firefox but I think your problem is in hand.

To get PSI working again U can try:

1. Updating to the latest version - 2.0.0.3003 - the link is here: http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal...

2. Right click on the tray icon & select Close Tray Icon - now restart PSI.

There is a bug with Windows 7 when trying to install the latest version. For best results I advise U do this:

Right Click Start>Open Windows Explorer>then navigate C:\Program Files (x86)>Secunia>PSI & then use the uninstaller from there BEFORE using the download link above


Hope this helps. Very late here in the UK so off to bed!

Maurice,

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

It worked like a charm. After the new version had started the tray icon was at first still red but after a full scan it turned green, hooray!

The whole thing makes me wonder "Did Auto Update not work?" and "Does PSI check itself being outdated?".

Oh well, I can check manually - if only the version information on the web site were easier to find. I am still searching.

Thank again and I hope you had a good night.

Regards
Eike
