Hello.
Lots of people have experienced problems and difficulty when trying to run psi 2.0 Beta using XP. Some have had to revert to previous versions of psi.
Have you read/checked thro' the FAQ's here (?):-
http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal... FAQ's
http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal...
HOW IT WORKS
Please note in particular the settings for IE which are needed for psi to work.
I've found that it can help to set IE8 as the default browser before install of psi; and then to revert to the browser of your choosing once successful.
Make sure you have a thorough clean/clear out between installs/uninstalls....remove temporary files etc..
Hope the foregoing is of some help......regards,

PS.....please note the following ( also noted in FAQ's )

Installing and upgrading the Secunia PSI

I get an error saying - Installer integrity has failed. Common causes include incomplete download and damaged media. Contact the installer's author to obtain a new copy.
The download has been corrupt. Please try clearing temporary files in your browser, or try using a download manager, a newer version of your current browser, or a different browser

I can understand some of your reticence with regard to using IE....but it is still the most popular browser, and as such enables Secunia to reach many with the free psi.
As IE is an integral component of Windows we are all reliant on it to more or less extent. Apart from the settings aforementioned, I rarely if ever use it. The search engine in all versions of psi is fundamentally the same....you still require the settings for previous versions to the psi 2.0 Beta.
If you are happy to have reverted to the 1.5.0.2 version, could you please close the thread by pressing Accept....it will prevent tag-on posts and reminder e mails to both......thankyou.
