When I try and close down I cannot because a program called `psi.exe` is apparently still running. If I let it close down in its own time, it doesn't and freezes. To close down I have to `end it now` on the message pop up!

I `googled this` and it says that it is probably something to do with the Secunia programme that I have running.

Any suggestions?

I am only `reasonably computer literate`, so please allow for this in any answers?

Thanks guys...

Hi,

Please press "Ctrl + Alt + Delete", the click the "Processes" tab. If you select the process "psi.exe" and choose "End Process", the PSI will close. Right-clicking the tray icon and selecting "Exit" should accomplish the same thing.

hope this helps.

It should not be necessary to do anything to close PSI when U reboot or close down permanently.

I do not recall the problem U describe being reported on this Forum.

When things go pear shaped U could always try a new installation.

After uninstall of the current version reboot before attempting to reinstall a fresh copy.

Check the Programme settings & then see what happens.

I notice U are not a new member. Has this problem just started?

Which OS are U using? Is it 32 or 64 Bit?

Any more clues if the reinstall does not work?

Guys

Sorry for taking a while to get back too you all.

To update you all on my `problem`.

I took Secunia out and reinstalled (as suggested by Maurice) and I am pleased to report that the problem is now `solved`! No more messages and no more problems when I try and `close down`.

Many thanks to all of you for the help...

Regards, Tolshar.

If U are happy can I ask U to close down the thread. This will prevent U & I from receiving update emails
