|After installing PSI 2.0 on my laptop (Windows 7, Firefox) with no comments from the installer, after an hour the computer is still trying to verify the internet connection. Prior to downloading 2.0, I had 1.5*, but I got the error message "Please wait while network connectivity is verified." I suspect both messages refer to the same problem How can I get PSI to work?|

| I will be guessing that everything else is functional and working fine. No Wlan problem and that wifi connection is good and modem strong if applicable. First keeping the version you have download the latest version from here:: ftp://ftp.secunia.com/PSISetup.exe now go ahead and re-install. If you get a dialogue box stating it cannot write file or similar re-start your p.c. and install. Hopefully we are not looking at the Lanman work station problem,my hunch is that it is your anti-virus. If after re-installing with the installer from Secunia and (IMPORTANT re-starting your p.c.) now run a scan. If it still does not work temporarily disable your anti-virus and try running.
For the Lanman problem this is what to do:Open a command line window and type in:
sc GetDisplayName LanmanWorkstation
This will show you the localized name.
To get the state of the service, you can use:
sc query LanmanWorkstation
For PSI to function it needs to be running, so set it to Automatic
Hope this helps

Hello Steve ,
Irrespective of your default browser , the PSI uses the embedded IE engine to contact it's servers ; it (IE) must be correctly configured as per these detailed instructions , each step is critical :-
See if they help .
It always seems impossible until its done.

The Workstation service is no longer a dependency for the PSI - this was solved in build 2001.
Try following the instructions in the FAQ item @Anthony linked above.
For good measure: http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal...
Hope this helps.
