Yeah simple....but it didn't check out as many programs.....It's not likely you're gonna get much faster if some left out in the cold, have still got holes in !!

What is your OS ?
Which version of psi are you loading ?

Win 7 64 bit and latest PSI. OSI was great for notifying you the popular attack vectors. PSI shows you more but a lot is far less exploited.

I'm finding the latest psi 3.0.0.9016 is a little bit slower than the psi 2.0 I've used for quite some time.....at the moment it's taking about 21/2 mins. on my Vista OS....that's with only 1GB RAM and 4GB Readyboost.....how does that compare with what your achieving ?

Some Windows 7 users had insoluble problems with psi 3.0 but found some peace of mind with 2.0
Your System Score isn't showing in your details....but I presume your hitting the 100% ?
Surely, every vulnerability unpatched is potentially exploitable ? Better be safe ?
How's psi performing in other ways ?
Have you tried taking psi 2.0 for a spin...see if it's more to your liking ?

Your original querie 'bout OSI has already been answered a couple of times since it's demise...you're just takin' time to adjust eh ?!!

Regards.....mogs.....

All my Endpoints on SMB must use Version 3 by default. None of them report any issues on load times or scan times.

I have just done a test load & scan using PSI 3.0.0.9016 - the results are here:

https://1ncuig.bn1303.livefilestore.com/y2pDt5uYuv...


As you will note the load time is 4 seconds & the scan time of 100+ items is 20 seconds.

The log file should give some clues to where the holdup is. If you publish a clean log file @mogs should be able to X reference the data with his.

Have you thought of using Qualy's checker in lieu of OSI? That is cloud based & will check all your browsers & add on's + your Security Suites & Microsoft Updates.

The site is here:

I have a high end desktop and a middle of the road laptop. The log says mine takes 1 second for it to come up. However I it takes about a full minute to get from click to being able to scan. It sits on the loading page for 1 min. That part is same speed on both my computers.

That scanner seems ok I had not come across it before. Not sure how it compares to OSI but ill give it a try.

Takes 1 min for it to come up to where I can scan. My desktop is a fast machine. Where do you get your system score to post on here?

On the vulnerabilities a fully patched computer has vulnerabilities right this second. There are many that are super low risk and I care about the medium to high risk stuff.

Your speeds look OK to me - Secunia do give this guidance:
https://1ncuig.bn1304.livefilestore.com/y2pdJRd-hw...

The slight variation in timings from my submission could be your download broadband speed? I use FTTC (Fibre Optic) which gives me 76-78MB download.

You can display your System Score by updating your profile. Just scroll up the page & click on My Profile.

The areas marked green on this screen shot can be changed at any time. Those marked in red should not be touched unless you are actually changing your password.

I understand your stance on vulnerabilities - I agree - Secunia is just an informer - what a users does with that information on low level vulnerabilities & End of Life software is a personal choice.

Did you try Qualy's? - they are the really "big hitters" in the security world. It can be run long side PSI or replace it all together in your instance.

Hope this helps.
