I can't seem to get my results to populate. Build 7100 x64. It will scan and be done rather faster than it should, and no results are listed, nothing happens. Not sure what to do to correct it. I always liked using the Secunia scanner as a convenient hub for software updates.

Raul,

100% pure coincidence.

Secunia PSI is not the source of your problem.

Is computer usable?
Please supply info about your computer.
Thanks,

Sounds like it could be a hardware failure

Raul,
Why do you think you erased the bios? Is this maybe due to some other action you took?

Will the computer boot up correctly?

Try booting up in "Safe Mode".
You enter safe mode by: turn computer off, turn computer on, tapping every second on the F8 key until you get a screen asking you if you want to boot into safe mode.

Infant mortality does occur with electronic devices despite the best efforts of quallty control and assurance departments. Although most problems are due to operator malfunction.

Definitely sounds like a hardware problem Raul.
Are you getting a post screen or nothing at all?
If you can boot into safe mode as Karlsnooks suggests then try doing a system restore.
Alternatively, if you have a W7 disk or a rescue disk try booting from that and do a repair install.
Regarding PSI Secunia, I tried on a x64 W7 install and found it immensely annoying.
Every time I logged on it would bombard me with reminders to update Adobe Flash and Adobe Reader. I'd do that and then it would remind me again. I began to believe that Adobe products are constantly out of date.(surely not)
I take your point about being useful in keeping everything up to date but it got so irritating I had to take it off.

Cheers, John
