The tray icon (psi_tray.exe), the user interface (psi.exe), and service (Secunia PSI Agent) are all separate in this new design. The user interface (psi.exe) still seems to be doing most of the scanning work and the service seems to do very little. When you quit out of the user interface everything exits: the user interface (of course), the tray icon, and the service all exit, and scanning just stops. If I want to close the window and let the scan finish (like before in 1.5) or just close the window and let the tray icon there... how does one do that?

I've seen this on windows 7 (32-bit), and XP SP3. This doesn't feel like its out of beta

Ok it does look like the service has most of the disk activity, but it looks like there is an unexpected amount of cpu activity from the user interface.

Also it showed that there were 5 new insecure programs but only listed 3, after restarting the program all 5 showed up.

Hi,

The issue with the PSI terminating full scans run in the UI if the interface is minimized has been fixed, and the solution will be deployed in a later release.

This means, of course, than you can let the scans finish in the background.

Closing the PSI UI should not terminate the tray icon and other processes. Are you running the latest build? ftp://ftp.secunia.com/PSISetup.exe

We will be investigating the other issues you have reported.

hope this helps.

It looks like a new build slipped out without catching my attention. Will test.

I take it the design is:
service: do the scanning and process the results
user interface: display the results (requires elevation it seems)
tray icon: show simple security status (no elevation)

Is this correct?

Using build 3001 on XP_SP3, exiting psi.exe (via closing window) results in the tray icon exiting and the psia.exe service stopping.

This worked properly once on windows 7, but then didn't work right after that. I think the tray icon was not running elevated the one time it worked right, but maybe that's not it I will have to test that.
