Intel Driver & Support Assistant still resulting in an endless scan

There was a post saying "Intel Driver & Support Assistant resulting in an endless scan?" that was closed on 11th December, saying that a new post should be created if anyone was still having problems.

Today is 12th December. I uninstalled DSA from the Control Panel, then ran DSAUninstaller.exe, then downloaded a new copy of DSA. I still have the same problem - ie, searching for new drivers scans continually and does not continue.

My system is Windows 10 Home 64-bit version 20H2 build 19042.685. Motherboard is ASUSTek H110M-Plus, with Kaby Lake chipset, HD 630 Graphics and Wireless-AC 9260 WiFi adaptor.

(NB. There is no obvious board to post in, so I have specified Graphics, as by the previous post referred to above).

tromso, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.


For this specific scenario, we recommend to try scanning with different browsers since Intel® DSA only works with the following: Chrome, Firefox and Edge. Then you can also try to clear the browser cache and then try rescanning the Intel® DSA tool.

 

If the problem persists, run the Intel® Driver & Support Assistant Uninstaller version 20.11.50.9:

Restart and install the latest Intel® Driver & Support Assistant tool version 20.10.42.5:

-If the issue remains, please provide the latest file from Intel® System Support Utility for Windows*:

-The latest Intel® Driver & Support Assistant Uninstaller log file: using File Explorer, search for DSAUninstaller.log

-The latest Intel® Driver & Support Assistant log files: using File Explorer: go to folder = C:\ProgramData\Intel\DSA, and zip the Log files or entire folder.

Note: Uncheck "Hide System Files" to see the AppData folder.

My default browser is Microsoft Edge (Chromium Version). I tried clearing the browser cache and cookies and also tried Chrome, but it was no different, so I followed the rest of your advice and am attaching the results as zip file DSA Analysis.zip.

Without me changing anything since yesterday, it has suddenly started working OK, so I guess there was a server problem that has been fixed. Thanks for your help, especially if it was you that found the solution.
