Hello, Everybody!
I need to reinstall my Secunia PSI but, please, if somebody knows how to uninstall it when it is not in Add/Remove Programs, I%u2019ll appreciate directions. I reinstalled my OS in an XP and all my files and applications were kept but Secunia is not working properly (it waits all the time %u201Cto load information%u201D) and it doesn%u2019t appear in my Control Panel nor Revo Uninstaller Pro. I tried by reinstalling without uninstalling first, hopping that the new one would do it, but it didn%u2019t work. I can%u2019t uninstall it from C:/Programs, because I would have to end its process via Task Manager, which is not %u201Crecommendable%u201D. What else could I do? Secunia PSI is supposed to protect computers from insecure programs; but now Secunia must be the insecure program in mine.
The computer is an HP Pavilion with Win XP Media Center
Version 2002 Edition 2005 SP 3
Pentium 4 CPU 3.06GHz 3.06 GHz 3.11 GB of RAM
My skills level: Beginner.

Thanks for any help.

Hello.
Have you read thro' the new FAQ's properly/thoroughly ? Particularly check that your settings are exactly as here : ( please note those more specific to XP further thro' the list.) :-

Try clearing out your temp. files/browser cache before re-installing....see if that helps.
Regards,

If U have Revo Pro are U tracing the downloads?

If so, just activate the uninstall in Traced Programmes & it removes all the files installed by Secunia.

Hello!
Thanks a lot for your help, but I used the link you gave me and tried everything under "The Secunia PSI is Stuck at "Verifying Internet connection..." and won't start. What can I do?" and it didn't work.
When my Secunia starts the dots become red quickly and it first says "Verifying Internet connection" but it continues beyond that to "Waiting for data to load..." and then it gets stuck, so probably the problem is not the Internet connection but something after doing that, probably its connection to Secunia's web site, but the "Check for server certificate revocation" was unchecked already when I went there via Internet Options.
Thanks again.

Hello!
After reinstalling my OS my Revo was still there and it works right but it didn't keep its Traced Programs. Thanks for your help anyway; I really didn't think of that option until I read your advise so, like mogs' post, it WILL be helpful a lot in the future to solve similar problems.

Thanks, Maurice.

@Mogs

Suggestion: what about a manual editing of registry and removal of program files. A clean install from the Secunia site? What do you think?

@puget
Yeah thanks.....the download from Secunia direct is likely to be of help.

@Touchito
Try the download from the link I gave you earlier first....and let it remove any previous version detected.....it usually makes a good job of cleaning up after itself....never found much in the registry myself.
