What is slow as a dead turtle? How many minutes, hours ???

PSI is not really a program update checker.
It checks for missing security patches and out of date end of life programs.
I run it occasionally to see what it finds, runs in a matter of minutes for me, on old hardware with OS's installed years ago.

I never tried Glary, I'll have to check that out.

If you want to try the most comprehensive update checker I've found, check out SUMo.
There is a learning curve to use and understand it.
It may report more than you want to know about.
There is a SUMo portable version, so no install needed.
It was taking as long as 10-15 minutes to scan. I do have a lot of programs on my desktop machine (over 100).

Yea I used Secunia too it was good for alerting but I usually just uninstalled and re-installed the out of date doo-da instead of letting Secunia do it for me because it was a slow bugger.

I did the same because it would take forever to do the updates for me.

I remember version 2 was a great piece of software. Then they released version 3 and I didn't like it as much, so uninstalled it. It's one of those programs I only used occasionally anyway.
I check for most software updates myself now, the only two I leave to check automatically are Java and Flash.

I don't use PSI to do updates, i just use it to see the report.
I like PSI 2.0 much better than 3.0.
Sadly, 2.0 is not compatible with Win 8.x, so i use 3.0 with 8.1.

I've been doing this for 6 years (since I first got a free imaging program).

This sort of fiasco is why I don't have much confidence in MS' new plan of pushing out updates "every few seconds" for W10.
MS had better restore the ability to turn off auto-updating (once W10 is released) unless they want constant bad publicity.

If they don't, people are going to have to unplug their network cables to protect themselves.
I don't want to have to image my PC prior to plugging in the network cable everyday.

I guess my options will be, stick with W7 and/or use Linux Mint every time I want to use the Internet.
I agree. I've been reading about W10 for a while and that is one of my 2 main questions. The other one is the talk about "secure boot" locking (user possibly not allowed to unlock to BIOS/legacy to boot to utility media (tool/rescue media, etc). It should be interesting to see what happens when the W10 general release is here and we begin to receive feedback about it.
Here is Dedoimedo's take:
Windows 10, alt OS lockout? Doomsday?

Guess what showed up in the Optional Update list on Thursday the 14th?

You guessed it - KB3035583.

"This update enables additional capabilities for Windows Update notifications when new updates are available to the user. It applies to a computer that is running Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)."

MS never gives up...

Are you running CMD in Admin mode?

Enter CMD in the Start search field box. Then right-click on the CMD icon and select "Run as Admin" from the pull-down menu.

Here are some screencaps. (just saw GEWB's post after posting this).
