Feature Overview - The Secunia Software Inspector:
* Detects insecure versions of applications installed
* Verifies that all Microsoft patches are applied
* Assists you in updating your system and applications
* Runs through your browser. No installation or download is required

I have just used the Beta version and it found 6 unused and out of date programs,

It is worth a look,

Thanks mfletch
Told be that my winzip was out of date (which I knew)
and that my Macromedia flash need to be updated.
Everything else OK.

Ah Ha!
So I upgrade my Macromedia flash player from 8 to 9.
Check on the adobe site and it tell me that 9 is successfully installed.
Run the Secunia Inspector again and it still tells me that I only have 8 and that I need to update!!!

Have you restarted your computer to fix the change

Thanks, only problem now is result of Beta test.
Amongst other things my XP Home SP2 is insecure.

"Have you restarted your computer to fix the change"

Yup - and it still tells me I am using version 8.

Only other thing have you removed the old version?

If yes Secunia isn;t any good,


  bluto1 20:45 16 Nov 2007

I got your last message. Hope it applies to me too. Cheers

It gets worse mfletch.
First off I thought I had already upgraded to 9. Checked my downloads folder - and indeed I had - back in August. So 9 was there all the time!
I think 9 only works as a plug-in to 8 because 8 is still on the system.
However when I installed 8 - it removed 7 - but the Secunia Inspector tells me that I still have 7 on the system .
What Ho!
