I am using Secunia PSI, but when I run the program it scans my laptop for possible update but doesn't show any update, instead it recommends to scan again showing following
" LAST SCANNED ON 3 August
SCAN AGAIN"

The same message is shown again and again

When I run a scan PSI gets to the point where it says retrieving results, but then says please run a scan

Thank you - you have still not given the full version number.

Try this:

Reinstall PSI using the clearly marked download link here:

https://secunia.com/products/consumer/PSI/sys_req/

Let it run - it will auto uninstall your old version & complete an update/reinstall to version 3.0.0.7011.

Once completed run a full PSI scan.

Has that fixed it?

Installing 3.0.0.7011 has fixed my issue and it is so much faster. The difference is phenomenal.

Does it not update itself or warn us it needs to be updated as I have missed all the upgrades since 3.0.0.6005.

Clive,
No - not providing an easy method to update to the latest version of PSI has been much debated on this Forum.

As far as I am aware they are still looking at ways to improve the situation.

Pleased to see you are fixed up.

I noticed that Secunia shows in my application list that 3.0.0.6005 is "up to date" so maybe we need to find some vulnerabilities so it becomes critical to update.

Clive,
That is correct. The PSI scanner only looks for vulnerabilities in any programme.

They are looking at ways to better inform users that a update has been released with cosmetic enhancements & bug fixes.
