Please please please please PLEASE get Secunia PSI to tell me when it's going to scan. Preferably giving me five minutes notice. I want a pop-up balloon to say "Secunia PSI will scan your computer in 5 minutes" and then another which says "Secunia PSI is now scanning your computer".

I'm so fed up of my computer dying on me for no apparent reason, only to discover that Secunia PSI has hijacked all its resources to do a scan without warning me first. I've hit the power button on my PC because it appears to have locked up - whereas it's just Secunia PSI taking over and preventing anything else from working.

I don't mind Secunia scanning as long as I *know* it's scanning - and preferably if it asks my permission first.

This is my biggest gripe about Secunia PSI by far. otherwise, I love it! :)

@ silvatek

Sorry for the misunderstanding cause I thought it was about a hijack of resources but you were asking Secunia to implement a new future to the interface.

Again sorry for the inconvenience.
