Maybe I'm the only one...

I cannot use PSI 2.0 because it takes 10 to 15 minutes to "Load data." Most times it just stalls out with two thermometer boxes to go.

One time I did make it through a scan because I was away from my computer for a couple hours and thought I would just let it go. PSI was "loading scan results" when I returned, I waited for another 23 minutes before I killed the process. Uninstalled and reinstalled PSI, tried it again and never made it past loading data...

I don't know what is going on, but for all practical purposes PSI 2.0 is unusable.

Even opening Secunia's website is painfully slow but at least it does finally load.

I wonder if the Secunia servers are overloaded. I mean Secunia seems to be transferring data back and forth from PC to server almost continually. I don't believe PSI 1.x did all this data transferring

I never had an issue with earlier versions.

The fact that you do have it running...tho' painfully probably an indication that the program itself is okay.
Are you using the latest version.....psi ? What is your Operating System ?
Do you carry out a routine/regular maintenance schedule....CCleaner or the like : use a Registry Scanner and least once a week ? Have you run CHKDSK recently to confirm/verify consistancy of the disk ?
Have you read thro' the more recent FAQ's....check everything is configured aright....particularly :- FAQ's
When there has been a problem with's been usual not to be able to scan at all..
Hope the foregoing helps....regards,

Hi bink.

I'd just like to add that it might be sensible for you to change your name straightaway. Publishing your email adress in an open forum is never a good idea. ;0)
