I've been using the Baseline Security Scanner 2.0 for several months
now without problems.  Suddenly, it has stopped working.  It scans all
the computers in my domain, then hangs waiting for the last computer to
finish scanning.  By "hang", I don't mean the program stops responding;
it just nevern finishes with the last computer.

If I hit "Stop" at this point, the program responds, but then just sits
there with the "Canceling Scan" message.

I didn't make any changes before this problem occured.  I know that's
boilerplate for "oh, BTW, I changed this, this, this, this and this,"
but this time, I really mean it.  NOTHING changed.

I also tried uninstalling, rebooting, reinstalling, rebooting, and
running the scan again, but I get the same results.

Any ideas?
