  6. Windows XP End Of Support

    After 12 years, support for Windows XP has ended on April 8, 2014. There will be no more security updates or technical support for the Windows XP operating system. Without critical Windows XP security updates, your PC may become vulnerable to harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software which can steal or damage your business data and information. Many software vendors will no longer support their products running on Windows XP as they are unable to receive Windows XP updates. Most PC hardware manufacturers will stop supporting Windows XP on existing and new hardware.

  7. Tip of the Day Tech Support Scams
    In a recent twist, scam artists are using the phone to try to break into your computer. They call, claiming to be computer techs associated with well-known companies like Microsoft. They say that they’ve detected viruses or other malware on your computer to trick you into giving them remote access or paying for software you don’t need.
    These scammers take advantage of your reasonable concerns about viruses and other threats. They know that computer users have heard time and again that it’s important to install security software. But the purpose behind their elaborate scheme isn’t to protect your computer; it’s to make money.

    Has anyone who has secunia psi having problems with it not loading?
    Secunia has just suddenly stopped working for me. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it 4 times now with no success. I have checked the Secunia forum to see if anyone else has the same problem, a solution has been suggested and worked for one person, but it doesn't work for me. I have also tried a fresh installer.

    The only think that I can think of is that I recently upgraded to KIS 2013 from KIS 2012. I tried running it with KIS deactivated, but still no luck.

    http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/13165/programm_doesn_t_work_at_all

    I have version 3.0.0.3001
    Any ideas?

    Use a program such as IObit Uninstaller to uninstall Secunia and find the left over traces and files that the default uninstaller leaves behind.

    Tested on a fresh installation of Windows 7, Working fine.

    You could give Kaspersky an uninstall, see if the problem persists. :s

    Could you provide more detail? Do you mean when you double click the shortcut to start the program, It doesn't start or show any application window at all?

    Have you checked Task Manager after clicking the shortcut to see if its running in the background?

    Or do you mean it shows the program or doesn't load the results on what needs updating?

    Secunia shows up in the taskbar.
    The GUI appears, it says Loading. The results don't show up at all.
    It appears as if it is stuck while loading

    Check that no firewall is stopping it from downloading the information it needs, Kaspersky Firewall > Disable it completely and add a rule.

    Also are you giving it time to load/show the results, I had to wait atleast 7 mins for it to show whats needing to be updated, And this was on a clean installation of Windows 7.

    It stopped working for me, too over the last week. I haven't done anything significant to my computer. I uninstalled and re-installed it.
    Sometimes you have good memories of things, but they change. I won't stalk it. So long Secunia PSI.

    I am running Secunia PSI 2.0 on my main PC. System tray icon is green but when I double click the icon the gui just sits there saying Verifying Internet Connection with no progress.

    I am also running Secunia PSI 3.0 in a VM which also shows the icon in the system tray and when I double click that icon I get the popup message shown below.

    I checked the Secunia PSI Forum, there are a couple of posts asking for answers to the same problem.

    I checked the connection to https://psi3.secunia.com/ and it fails.

    Try the Online Software Inspector (OSI) Java online version and see if it will work.

    I have had problems with Secunia PSI before, it appears to be full of bugs.

    Also try Belarc Advisor, it always seems to work and is just as good as Secunia PSI.

    Enjoy!!:D
