I am using PSI 22.214.171.12401 which I downloaded and installed on 27 July 2012.
You are right, I did have a second installation on my C drive (V. 12) which I just uninstalled after seeing your note. However, I ran a new scan with PSI and it is still detecting version 12 on my D drive even though I had installed version 15. One strange thing was that although properties initially showed version 15, after I removed version 12 from the C drive, the D drive installation began showing version 12.x. I finally removed Pale Moon completely and did a cleanup and PSI no longer detects it.
Thanks for the quick response.
