Lately I've been experiencing problems with Secunia PSI Beta. Whenever I start the program, the interface shows up in an unusual manner. The score isn't there any more, some graphical elements are distorted, I am not able to minimize, maximize or close the interface. If I click it, it becomes unresponsive. The summary, system score development, security patches for last month and "compared to" tabs/graphs are empty. So, I must close Secunia from Task Manager (processes). However, the tray icon is still accessible and working, but it is useless to me. It's the first time when I encounter these things. I uninstalled PSI and installed it again, and it works. But the next time when I start the application the same problem occurs. My operating system is Windows 7 (32-bit version).

PS: No important changes have been made to the operating system since Secunia PSI was working properly. And it's not a spyware/virus problem, so please, don't use this as answer.

Hello.
Have you tried running CHKDSK to assure of consistancy ? Personally, I'd run my registry cleaner/scanner...some people aren't keen on them tho' : but many have no objection to the one in CCleaner. Do you defragment often ?
Is it the only program you are having the various symptoms with ?

I've run CHKDSK today. I clean my registry too, I use TuneUp, and yes, I defragment quite often, once a week. It's the only program with these problems. And, like I said, I haven't done any major changes to my operating system, so I can't understand why I have this problem and why it works when I run it after install, and afterwards it doesn't.

Yes, I am running IE 9 Beta. You may be right, far as I know, Secunia is using the Internet Explorer engine. Thank you.

There is no maybe.....psi 2.0 Beta is not compatible with IE9 Beta. Tho' all versions of psi are dependant 'pon settings within IE Stable.
It might also be worth noting that no versions of psi monitor beta/dev versions of programs.

You should expect issues like U describe if U run ALPHA,BETA or RC VERSIONS of programmes on a main working platform.

1. In general terms PSI does not monitor these types of programme although there are exceptions,for example, PSI V2 BETA. IE9 is one of those not monitored.

2. IE 9 is not programmed for RTM until 2011. Having tried it for two weeks there are minor issues like U describe with PSI & other professional programmes I use. The vendors have guaranteed full compliance with IE9 by full launch date & I suspect Secunia will do the same. Adobe Flash & Oracle JAVA have already achieved this.

3. One of the minor issues is the lack of graphics with PSI using IE9. My short test period showed that all other aspects were compliant but U can never really be sure unless U are an experienced BETA tester.

4. The drag U describe is dealt with elsewhere on the Forum. It is not new nor is it necessarily linked to IE9. This is one link, but there are others dating back 18 months:

Hope this helps.
