The problem that is partially solved is the problem of computer security. Specifically, it slightly improves the security in the situation of an Internet connected desktop computer with a non-experienced user, where it is currently far too easy to use social engineering to infest a great number of machines with trojans because of security policys that currently make it far to easy to run arbitrary executables downloaded from the Internet.
What has been proposed is another partial solution, and I'm sure more partial solutions will be created in the future. It's an endless balance between security and convenience.
