I have installed V3 for a view weeks now but there are no changes in the history file. Nothing seems outdated, nothing updated, nothing scanned .....?

This can't be OK

Hi,

The reason for this might be that the PSI is unable to connect to our servers, please give a try to the following entry in our FAQ: http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal...

If the above doesn't solve your problem, then contact us at support@secunia.com

No thats not the problem.

There is contact with your servers although the scan is very slow up to 10 min.

There is contact
All your 98 programs are up-to-dateLast scan: Wed Jul 18 2012

With the 2.x I got every week multiple updates incl Microsoft that I needed to do manually. Now the only update in the history list is 5x Adobe flash player 11 in the last weeks ?

I have to agree with this thread. After using version 2 for ages and being suitably impressed I have been disappointed by a program tht seems to hang. This morning it told me that I needed to manually update Shockwave V10.x. Opened Secunia up.- It looked like it was doing someting but half an hour later still doing same. After two more attempts went on to Adobe website and updated within 2 minutes. Will probably remove Secunia if no improvement.

I know its free and I sound ungrateful but the old program version was so much user friendly.

Richard,
You are not alone. This Forum is awash with users disappointed by version 3.

Secunia implied last week that individuals can pick & choose which version of PSI suits them best on the basis that V3 is not an upgrade from version 1 & 2 but a variant.

The download links are below my Signature Block if U prefer to revert to something you find more user friendly.

I am not sure I understand your reply. Have you used the PSI to install any programs since you started to use PSI 3.x?
If not, that would explain why the History page is empty.
