Why doesn't the spreadsheet option for reports save to my desktop?

For security reasons, a web server is not typically allowed to write files onto a client's machine. What we have done instead is to send the spreadsheet-based reports in Excel format. Your browser should either ask you to save the file, or open it in Excel. If you chose to open the file with Excel (or if that is your browser's default action), you can save the file to your desktop using File->Save from your browser menu.

When I try to run a report, the screen flashes, but no report is displayed.

The most likely cause is a pop-up blocker either set on your machine or a departmental server. Configure the pop-up blocker to allow pop-ups from To help determine if this is the problem, try holding down the [ctrl] key when you submit or run the report. This key will allow you to bypass many of the common pop-up blockers.

When I try to patch an application using Secunia PSI, I get this error: “Downloaded file has incorrect SHA1sum." Why?

The file being provided by the software vendor does not match the file identifier that Secunia PSI has on record. This type of error should eventually resolve itself, though that may take some time. In most situations it is simpler to go to the software vendor's website and download the most recent version they have available and manually install that version.
