Since the release of PSI 3, Secunia has turned into a POC!! I have removed it from all of my XP computers, and probably will do the same with my Win 7 machines.

It has slowed the XP machines to a crawl, doesn't load on one and made Windows Update quit working on a third machine. Not what I expected.....................Version 2 works just fine.

Just a rant, I feel a little better now!

I'm right there with you. In fact, I specifically registered at this forum just now to see how others's experiences are. Right now I feel like my options are to roll back to ver. 2 or stop using it altogether. My great experiences as a long time ver. 2 user have made me stick it out through the ver. 3 beta and release. My patience has worn out. :)

I am right there with you too.
Version 3.0 is for dummies. It is a giant leap backwards for previous Secunia 2.0 users. It takes forever to load, is mostly unconfigurable, and is generally a dumbed down shadow of its former self.

Please be aware that Secunia have stated on this Forum that version 3 is not an upgrade to version 2.

It is aimed at Beginner Class users & those that do not object to third party vendors taking control of a remote PC by trying,where possible, to automatically update programmes that are vulnerable.

Version 1 & 2 remain fully supported.

Links to various alternatives are below my Signature Block.

then secunia completely blew it. psi 3.x implies an upgrade over psi 2.x. if the intent was to release a different product, don't call it psi. or, call it psi-lite. something. anything.

but now i understand and will continue with 2.x.

I have since "downgraded" to version 2 and things are back to normal (IMHO). You can bet I'll pay lots closer attention to future "upgrades"
