Who you going to believe?

I checked with Legacy about this alert and got the reply below today:

Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) does flag Actbar.OCX as an old file; however Legacy still uses it. As you found out, if you delete or rename it Legacy won't work any longer and will have to be reinstalled. Actbar.OCX is not a security risk. Please don't worry about what PSI says about it.

Sincerely,
Sherry

Thank you. I, too, have Legacy Family Tree. Your inquiry and posting saved me the trouble.

Has anyone asked Data Dynamics about fixing the problem?

Legacy has released the long awaited v8.0 update to their Family Tree line. v8 is a complete new install - not an upgrade. You'll need to uninstall v7.5 after converting your data file to the new format - it asks if you want to make a ZIP of your old data file before it upgrades it. When uninstalling v7.5, ActiveBar is removed. Finally! back to 100% again!

Here's link to download the new free version of Legacy Family Tree v8.0: http://www.legacyfamilytree.com/DownloadLegacy.asp...

ActiveBar was upgraded by it's maker to version 3 before all support was discontinued but installing v3 doesn't integrate it into Legacy Family Tree and ActBar.ocx isn't touched by the install. Best/easiest solution is to upgrade to v8 and uninstall previous version of Legacy - be prepared for a whole new look afterwards.
