When I use the OSI on my laptop it says "1 error detected" with scan and status is :null.
Then the scanner stops. When I used it the first time it said I had various Adobe players that needed patched updates and I started to download and run them.
I ran a few, then returned to the OSI to check. That's when this error occurred. What caused it how can I fix it please? Thanks.

Most scanning issues with the OSI are related to Java not functioning correctly in the browser. To solve it you can go to Ad/Remove Programs in the Control Panel and completely uninstall Java. Then go to and install the latest version. Then the OSI should function correctly again.
