I've newly installed ver. 3, after bad experiences with previous versions Icomplaints about bad Java applets or improper certificates, depending on whether I was scanning online or offline), and this one doesn't look too bad other than it's "loading" forever despite plenty of RAM and a good DSL connection, before results are viewable. Some kind of progress bar would be nice.

The installer unfortunately doesn't include creating a desktop shortcut. Since I don't intend having PSI start at bootup, but rather plan on doing a scan every week or two, to which exe should I create a shortcut via "send to desktop"? I'm currently using psi.exe, which seems to work OK, but should I be using psia instead?

Wandering off-topic, is there anywhere I can set forum-viewing preferences, which I could find no reference to anywhere? Normally, in forums where I've been active for years, that's somewhere in the profile section, but if that's here then I totally missed it. In particular, I find I have to zoom out 2x to view the full width of a page (no provision for scrolling), with the result that text is barely readable.

Thanks and best.

Psi.exe is the correct file for a shortcut; alternatively (Win 7), you could go to the start menu, find "Secunia PSI" and create a shortcut from there ... ;-)

Thanks. Turns out it also goes into the XP start menu, didn't think to check there.
