I also get stuck at an initialization screen that says PSI 2.0 is finding the Internet. Several times now I watched Secunia download until it stops accessing the Internet. I confirmed that it downloads information over the Internet because I see network activity from it. But it doesn't seem to download the information quickly enough before it quits.

I recently used PSI 2.0 on my XP Laptop without any problems, but that was on a fast public (Wi-Fi) connection.

It might be some other link in the chain that prevents it from finishing, but I'm not sure what it could be if it's accessing the Internet successfully. In the past I had to set the Internet Options at default, but I already have them set there to accommodate my Iron browser.

Can we (dialup users) get a simple version that at least downloads the program interface? Even the older versions of PSI were quite slow. Now the newer version doesn't work. I know I'm not the only dialup user left.

-- System Details --

Dialup Connection Speed: ~30kbps
Vista Ultimate 32bit
Avast, Prevx (Free), Windows Firewall

Well, now it worked suddenly!

It needed to download the interface information over several tries, spanning several times (1) watching for it to use network activity and stop; (2) closing the program and restarting it, and repeating (1) as needed. This seems to finally get it to work on dialup connections.

I closed the program and tried again and it loaded the interface more quickly the second time. I hope it stores this information to continue to make it load in the future.

Odd that it finally works after I posted. I tries about three times yesterday and about three times today before posting originally.
