taffy078 More strange goings-on!

I have just installed a few new programs, ibncluding Chrome v 16.0.912.77. (You were right, Mogs! It's far quicker that IE8. But I chickened out of having the latest Beta version!)

So I ran a scan. It was still going six minutes later so I closed PSI. But nothing happened.

I opened Task Manager and found that I had a 100% CPU situation. psia.exe was using 97% CPU with 19.2 MB memory useage and VM size 13.4 MB. But it wasn't shown as running in the Process section.

I couldn't even turn off the PC - I had to power off.

Restarted with no problems (although I haven't run a scan yet).

Is it my imagination or do the majority of such strange happenings take place during the weekend?

Anyone else having problems?

@taffy

That's the beauty of the Canary Channel ( rarely a tweet in a coalmine !)...you can get a taste of the future....platform 18.
Snippet from here :-http://www.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-chann...
Chrome Release Channels

Windows

Stable channel for Windows
Beta channel for Windows
Dev channel for Windows
Canary build for Windows (Note, this will run in parallel to any other Chrome channel you have installed, it will not use the same profile)


Just don't put all your jewels in it....tho' it's never seemed fragile !!

@mogs: how things have developed! From Pigeon post to Canary platforms!

@Maurice: my heading was totally inadequate - sorry. I should have written "More strange goings-on with PSI version 2.0.0.4003. Having updated to 4003 and now found there are issues with it (as has been acknowledged before) should I revert to v2.0.0.3003?

U can only revert if U have the installer files available in back up.

Secunia do not supply a link to use it.

Scan times should be no different whatever version - it uses the same engine.

@Maurice: "Scan times should be no different whatever version - it uses the same engine."

I was thinking more about the "strange goings-on" that quite a few have reported. It appears to me that they happen most with v2.0.0.4003.

Or am I wrong?

Version 2.0.0.4003 has one or two bugs but none, to my knowledge, that affect the primary tasks of the programme including scanning.

I would describe the bugs more cosmetic than earth shattering. I suppose the biggest loss is the lack of programme details displayed in the Secure Browsing Page for advanced users.

They should be able to workaround that & it is not important to anyone else.
