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.

|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.
