    Secunia 3.0 doesn't work on XP

    I have an XP system up to date on all fixes. MS Baseline Security says I am up to date. MS Security Essentials and Malawarebytes run error free. Secunia PSI starts a scan and hangs. I have reinstalled it and get the same error. Suggestions?

    I think you will get better support on Secunia's own support forums. There you will get people who know the application better than anyone.

    secunia 3 on XP

    Same here. I've uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times, disabled all automatic updates, but it still freezes and hangs my system. using up to 97% CPU.

    Are these problems with the latest version 3.0.0.3001 released on Thursday (7/26), because that included "Bug with "long scan time for initial scan" has been fixed".
