This has been a trip. I did not like the format of the new V3. I uninstalled it and decided to go back to V2. Well that was a fiasco since I got a message from W7 that the PSI2.exe was not a valid program. I reinstalled the latest V3 and saw that the presentation is more like the old V2. I am beginning to question the ability of PSI to do what it is advertised to do since they can't seem to get the installs correct.

To me, being retired from hardware and software design for 45 years, that these companies change things for the sake of change and for what some young programmer with the business sense of a child thinks is "cool." I see all throughout the WEB.

The biggest comlaint I have with the new version is the slower processing. It takes 3 times longer to do a scan than it did in V2.

What is the deal with CSI? I haven't looked at it except for the flashy adds and grand promises of a better life.

OK the new and improved version of V3 tells me that I am 100% clean, but there are 2 programs listed as "examining program" one is Adobe Air and the other is Google Chrome. The funny thing is that I uninstalled Google Chrome. It seems that when you go to Adobe to get an update (because PSI desn't work correctly) tha Google Chrome gets installed also. I then uninstall it.

This just keeps getting better. I looked at history and I find the following
2013-0-12 11:47 Adobe Air succesful
2013-0-12 10:49 Microsoft Intenet explorer 9.x Started Windows update
2013-0-11 20:58 same as above
2013-0-11 20:58 ditto

Can anyone tell me how Secunia knos what I am going to do next year?

Thank you for reporting. The issue with the incorrect time stamps will be fixed in the next release of the PSI.

You really have to watch when you install updates from Adobe. Undoubtedly there is a box checked by default saying that you want some other software installed. It could be Chrome, some search tool, or whoever they get money from to install the unwanted software. Sometimes you really have to look. I've been sure that there wasn't a box only to find it tucked away hiding in plain sight. For a company that is plagued with security issues, installing unrelated software with a security patch and then justifying it by saying that you can uncheck the box, is the height of audacity.

Hey

The "time stamp" issue has now been fixed. If you delete the cache in IE, the dates will show up correct in PSI.

Thanks for reporting this issue.
