Ever since I upgraded to W8, Secunia doesn't scan correctly; when I click scan again, it "hangs" on the "preparing scan" step forever. Is anyone else having this problem? And is there a way to fix it? Thanks.

It looks like your default browser is not set up correctly. Details here:

I have just completed a test scan using PSI version 2.0.0.3003 & all seems to be in order using Windows 7 as can been seen here:

I suspect you are using PSI version 3.0.0.4001. Perhaps worth trying another version of PSI. If you want to give that a go the download links are below my Signature Block.
