Hi -
The best way to answer your concerns is to give you these links to Secunia PSI -
Understand how the Personal Software Inspector (PSI) scans
It is NOT the purpose of the Secunia PSI to detect whether your system has already been compromised or if local changes, settings, or missing requirements could cause the Secunia PSI to report incorrect results. The Secunia PSI relies on the meta-data of executables and library files. The Secunia PSI does NOT conduct an integrity check of the individual files, rather, it checks whether a specific program is vulnerable according to the reported version numbers and not whether the files have been compromised or replaced by other users or programs.

Good Luck -

No, I've not heard it being used to patch broken files before. I use it to keep my applications up-to-date, not to fix installations.

Hi Jim,

Try this:

  • Right-click your PDF file > Open With > Choose default program > Select Adobe Reader.
  • Place a checkmark the box next to "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file".
  • Click OK.
