"Once a great program this is now unusable"

March 13, 2013  |  By fxspringer

 |  Version: Secunia Personal Software Inspector beta

Pros

Used to be a super program to track updates.

Cons

This program has been largely unusable on any computer I've tried to install it on. Either freezing the computer, not responding or unable to operate.

Summary

This program is way too full of bugs and a hassle to use.

"Great - but can no longer download updates"

January 19, 2008  |  By joemac

 |  Version: Secunia Personal Software Inspector beta

Pros

Secunia PSI does a great job of tracking software versions, notifying the user of out of date or end of life products. It also takes the user quickly and (usually) easily to the place to fix it. If not for the update problem explained below, this would be FIVE STAR.

Cons

On one of my two WinXP SP2 computers, I can no longer update Secunia because it shows a previous version is uninstalled. Nothing I've done will uninstall the old version -- and I've followed all instructions on Secunia's FAQ pages showing changes to make in the Registry. The other computer updated perfectly to the PSI RC1 version.

"Must Needed Maintenance and Security Utility"

January 19, 2008  |  By Wimpy6

 |  Version: Secunia Personal Software Inspector beta

Pros

Easy installation and set up. Detects insecure versions of applications installed. Verifies that all Microsoft patches are applied. Even detects "end-of-life" applications. Assists you in updating your system and applications. Runs through your browser. There is an online version that requires no installation or download. There is also an offline version which you can install and have monitor your system.

Cons

The only drawback, as of right now, you cannot print out listing of found software so you can sit down, go over it, think about it, etc. All viewing has to be done from within the application.

"And It's Still Only in Beta!"

January 15, 2008  |  By linda245

 |  Version: Secunia Personal Software Inspector beta

Pros

This is one FANTASTIC program, and it's still only in beta! It found all my programs that either had security vulnerabilities or needed updating. So, I did what Secunia told me to do and now I have NO insecure programs on my computer! (Even my Word 2000 program needed a security patch. Not being a "geek," I had no idea that Office programs are susceptible to security issues.) By the way, there is an updated beta version of Secunia, so I installed that, too!

Cons

NOTHING! If the BETA version is this good, jJust imagine how amazing the FINISHED version's gonna be!

"great little update checker"

December 21, 2007  |  By moppentappers

 |  Version: Secunia Personal Software Inspector beta

Pros

I was using the software since the first release, and for an beta release it did its job fine

now, with RC1 the program looks finished, finally it is user friendly and I think the feedback is really used

Cons

too bad it is only english, program should take a bit less resources and an option to notifie about feature updates to

"Fantastic"

December 13, 2007  |  By purple_ragdoll

 |  Version: Secunia Personal Software Inspector beta

Pros

Does exactly what it says it will. Shows all software versions installed and links to websites for newer versions of outdated programs.

Cons

I'd like to see it able to uninstall the versions it says are outdated. Difficult to do this through windows.

"Really one of the best little programs available"

November 13, 2007  |  By mikeskid

 |  Version: Secunia Personal Software Inspector beta

Pros

It produces what it promises. Insecure program versions, end of life programs. If you hover with your mouse on the entry, an info box pops up with the location of the program. Really great.

Cons

Not a one.
