Re: Cant update Secunia PSI security software

There could be several reasons which might be the root cause of the problem of mine. hence I am posting following question which you should answer so that I can tell you about the further steps for troubleshooting. Which operating system do you have installed on the computer? Do you have done any hardware or software changes on the computer? Do you have installed any antivirus program on the computer? I am suspecting that this particular problem is occurring due to Virus attack.

Re: Cant update Secunia PSI security software

I am suggesting following thing which you can do and see whether there is any difference in the situation.
You have to browse to the following folder and delete the same from the computer.
Code:
c:\program files\Secunia
now browse to the following folder and erase the following file.
Code:
c:\documents and settings\bill\localsettings\application data\Secunia PSI
you should disable the Avira and run the Online Scan on the computer by using the good online scanner.

Re: Cant update Secunia PSI security software

It might be possible that the thing which you are trying to do is not occurring due to conflict on the system of yours. hence I recommend that you should boot your computer into safe mode. In order to boot your computer into safe mode you have to restart the computer and start tapping F8 from the keyboard. Now you should select the Safe Mode with Networking from the Advanced Boot Menu screen. Once the computer is boot into safe mode you should try to update the security program and see whether it is working or not.

I am suspecting that this particular problem is occurring due to the corruption of the file due to some unknown reason. Well I recommend that you should remove the security program from the computer and reboot after uninstalling the same. Now you should try to install the security program on the computer. after installing the program you should restart the computer. after doing the same you should try to update the security program.

Re: Cant update Secunia PSI security software

If none of the above solution is not working then why are you looking to use this particular antivirus program. Well there are number of security programs are available in the market which you can use. Personally I recommend that you can go for Malwarbytes or ESET Online Scan to get best protection from the viruses and malwares. I am hoping that the security tools which I have mentioned would be helpful to you.
