Hello to all.

Soon after I start Secunia, progress bar reaches 5% and doesn't move. I started Secunia several times, and also uninstalled Secunia and restarted computer but nothing has changed.

Thanks in advance.

The following steps are the latest version I know of to ensure connectivity to Secunias servers:

Secunia PSI needs to be able to connect to Secunia servers to complete its scanning. However, if you have configured
the security settings of your Internet Explorer, the Secunia PSI may be prevented from getting the scan results. To receive
your scan results, you need to do some changes to your Internet options.
To do this:
a. Open Internet Explorer.
b. Go to Tools>Internet Options>Security tab.
c. Select the Internet zone and click on the Custom Level button.
d. In Security Settings, go to the Scripting>Active Scripting option.
e. Make sure that Active Scripting is Enabled (rather than Disabled or Prompted).
f. Press OK then Yes.
g. Back in the Security tab, select the Trusted sites zone and click on the Sites button.
h. Look at the bottom of the page and take the tick from the box marked"Require server verification(HTTPS)for all site zones" then type in the following and press the Add button to add them to the Trusted Zone Sites list:
http:*.secunia.com
https:*.secunia.com
i. Press Close
j. Run the Secunia PSI again to view the scan results

If using a browser other than IE the settings can be accessed by clicking Start-Control Panel-Internet Options-then follow c thru j

I know the directions start by saying for scanning but I believe these directions are valid to insure connectivity to the Secunia servers.

Active Scripting has been already enabled. I have added https://*.secunia.com to the trusted sites list (adding of htpp://*.secunia.com failed because only secure connections are allowed to be added). After that Secunia behaves identically as before - it starts scanning, comes to 5% and stops while showing message "Scan is running"...

Anyway, thank you very much for spending your time trying to help.

The enclosed link has more suggestions for a fix-also did you follow ALL of "h" in the first post by removing the tick @ the bottom of the page?
Here's link for more help-please be sure to read all the thread: http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/139...

You're very welcome, glad all is well now but might be a good idea to let everyone know which solution worked-it might be of value to someone else. Happy & safe Cybersurfing.
