I'm getting "Windows Internet Explorer" error:

Stop running script?

A script on this page is causing Internet Explorer to run slowly, if it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive.

What version of PSI? What happens if you close IE when running PSI?

XP has a history of not being able to run the latest version of PSI. You need to uninstall it and use version 1.5

Where can I find version 1.5?

On the right hand side versions 1 and 2 under the download button. I'm still look for 1.5. It might have been pulled I know I found it before. I'll keep looking.

Yes it is, but I'm reluctant to suggest that download. That's not the download I was thinking of.

Always a pleasure !

 

When Secunia opens, click on Configuration, then Settings, and UNTICK "Enable Automatic Program Updates"

 

This will stop the program automatically updating and then failing to function properly

That's the one that I still use today & it works good. Version 3 was a bit buggy on the one OS I tried it on, so stuck with #2. I like that it auto updates most of my apps with little or no input on my part.

 

Though it'll never produce a 100% score on an XP system. Also, even when having the latest XP updates, it never showed the latest Malicious Software Removal Tool as installed.
