Secunia (PSI)2 problem

Likes # 0

I've been using Secunia (PSI)2 for a couple of years now with my computer running Windows home premium. Just lately, whenever I try to update my programs using Secunia I get a couple of error messages. 1) "Unable to locate an appropriate web browser for the requested URL" followed by: 2) "An error occurred when attempting to open specified URL" I can't use Secunia's forums as I get these messages when I try. Can anyone suggest a solution, please?

Try uninstalling PSI , and reloading . I occasionally get similar problems , this usually solves the issue

Thanks Nick, I had already tried that with no success. By chance I remembered that I had un installed Firefox some time back. I re installed Firefox and made it my default browser, and everything worked as it should! It seems that Secunia needs Firefox (or does in my case) to work!

Thanks again for taking the trouble to reply.
