Hi Everyone

Just a quick question, I upgraded to ver. 2
I noticed it does not list browers like IE or Firefox like the last version did as being patched. Also, the last ver. listed as 104 being patched and new ver.
lists 95 has being patched.

Your response would be greatly appreciated.

Have a good day

This should help U understand it:

U should also check the manual that supports PSI at:

Open PSI>Dashboard>Learn More>Secunia PSI Manual (PDF)

If all your problems are now resolved could U please lock (Accept) the thread. This will prevent us both from receiving update emails from "tag on" posts.

Are you referring to the Secure Browsing feature ? If so, you need to enable it by ticking the relevant box within Configuation/Settings.
If the browsers you refer to aren't Beta versions, they still should show in your Scan Results. Hope I've understood you correctly.

Below is a copy of an official explanation regarding program detection/count :-

The mechanism for scanning has not changed radically, and the PSI still detects every program it did before (If anything, it detects more programs). However, a few of the specific changes in the 2.0 could make it appear that some programs have disappeared.

One is that the PSI now tries to group several detections of the same program as one entry, and only counts it as one. This mean that if you, for example, have 5 installations of Google Chrome 5.x, only 1 will be counted and shown in the statistics. This is to avoid the confusion caused by "Zombie Files" (Upgrade leftovers), which was a common issue with older versions.

You can still see every detected instance by expanding the program entry under "Results". If you double-click the entry, a list with the appropriate statuses for each program.

Another is that the PSI now by default only scans the root drive (Which is usually C:), and the drive containing "Program Files" (Usually also C:). To scan other drives, you can go to the Settings tab and choose which drives you wish to scan under "Drives", simply by setting a checkbox next to the appropriate drive.
