When I turn on my computer (or re-boot) I get the message 'Secunia PSI.lnk disabled'. Can anyone tell me what this means please?

It means that PSI is not enabled to run in your computer's "StartUp Menu" .

You should be able to enable it using your PSI's "settings" tab , tick the box to "Start the Secunia PSI on Boot" , if that is your wish.

You need to be in to "advanced" mode (selection is at the top right of any PSI page) to see the "settings" tab .

As this is your first post , I will give you some basic advice (sorry if you already know) , which may help you explain any problems to us more specifically :-

To help resolve any problem , here are some instructions to help you first of all get the best out of PSI :-

1)use PSI in "advanced" mode ;
2)in the "settings" tab make sure that the box in the first/upper section is NOT ticked in order to have the maximum info available ;
3)tell us in which "tab(s)" your problem programme is located ;
4)in that tab , click on the + in the box at the left end of the programme , the page will expand ;
5)in the expanded page , tell us what is written in the "installation path" ;
6)in the "toolbox" section , lower down , the link "technical details" should confirm the installation path details ;
7)click on the link "open folder" and you will see more details concerning the location of the "problem" .

Posting these details will help the Forum help you , if/when you have a problem .

Take care


It always seems impossible until its done.

Thank you Anthony for your reply. I now understand the workings of PSI much better. Thank you also for the instructions on reporting any further problems.
Best wishes
