I have also since a number of weeks that PSI loops during the scan-facility, and it never ends(even when I let it scan for a whole night the next morning it is still scanning!).. It looks the same as already reported by other people. Please who can help me out, or what to do?

Have you double checked all these settings are OK?

http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal...

If that does not work what OS are you using & which version of PSI?

I have the same problem on Win 7-64 Prof. SP 1 with PSI 3.0.0.9016. PSI does not stop scanning. Before it worked for months without problems. With Sysinternals Process Explorer I see about 100.000 bytes IO every second and CPU consumption near 1 %. And I made the configuration described in the link!

I was asked to reply on my release (3.0.0.10004) and my OS, and the settings..
( I had problems on replying on my own thread for days. I got an empty login-box, with no login and password field. Finally I registered a new id and that worked to reply om my own thread.)

Here is my reply.

1) The two requirements (1. active scripting) and (2. add website ) are both done (website was not there, I did add that)
2) OS is vista.
3) I also switched the secunia startup-process by starting under windows administrator and one time without administrator-authority.
I see a difference.
a) with admin-authority the startup "hangs" immediately. Means the startup-screens stays there for ever, and no software-inventory or whatever is showing..
b) without admin-authority the first startup process ends and also shows nothing of the software-inventory, and gives the note "probably old software scan now" . ( in dutch my screen shows of course different language,)

SO, maybe the conclusion is right, that without rights the startup-process ends early and goes to some next stage within PSI.

Now I have installed the actual version 10004. And now the scanning stops after about 6 seconds, and PSI tells me to scan again ... :-(

If I click on the PSI-button after a boot the PSILOG-file shows the events below.

As reported earlier the software-tray is empty. Hopefully this will bring any help to solve it.

I am running actual version 10004 in a dutch Vista.
After running about an hour I got a crash in Psi with msg from Windows in dutch:
"Secunia Agent werkt niet meer en is gesloten"
(Secunia Agent do not work anymore and is closed)

Hereafter you get the last lines of a very big psialog.txt:

From the results you are showing it looks to me like you all may be suffering from a possible bug outlined here:

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/152...

If you believe you are a candidate as far as I know they are still accepting bug reports via Email as described in the thread. It is unlikely anyone from Secunia Support will attempt to help on this thread.
