Is there any sort of patch that can be used for this? I tried the licensing toolkit repair and it seemed to work fine up till recently. I would update the program but I really only use it for handling files in TIFF format (scanning pics and negatives) and it's really just too expensive if that's all I'm gonna use it for anyway. Thanks for any help.

Adobe Photoshop Elements versions 6,7 & 8 are now End of Life which means no more updates or security fixes will be issued by the vendor.

Version 10 has just been released. Details on a replacement are here:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Adobe-Photoshop-Elements-U...

Because U use your current programme in a limited way U could do a risk assessment against the Secunia Advisory & then create an Ignore Rule if U consider the risk worth taking.

Hope this helps.

.tiff files aren't affected. See: http://www.adobe.com/support/security/advisories/a...

Best part of £100 for the upgrade from Adobe. A nice little earner.


If you want to be cautious, consider using EMET: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?...

These are buffer overflow vulnerabilities and EMET is good at stopping them being exploited.

Thanks for the help : ) I'll do a lot of research and then see if it's worth ignoring the program. I'll definitely check out EMET. Cheers again for the help.

I can't locate an uninstaller, nor is Adobe Photoshop Elements in my list of installed programs on Windows Vista. Any idea how I can uninstall this program?

What path is PSI showing to the programme?

2. Click the + sign next to the item that U want help with.
3. This will reveal the path under DETECTED INSTANCES.
4. Below DETECTED INSTANCES you will see this You can double click this row for additional information & options>double click it>a box will appear>look to the RIGHT & U will see TROUBLESHOOT REPORT in BLUE writing under the heading TOOLBOX> click TroubleShoot Report & it will reveal some information in a box>highlight the information revealed from ---START--- to ---END--- & copy it (CTRL+C) then post it to the Forum (CTRL+V)

VERSION 3
This version does not have such an easy method to publish the path.

Open PSI>once open select Show Programs.
U will now see a page full of programme icons or a list.
Right click on the programme in error>select Show Details - that will open a box showing the path & version number of the offending file.
U now have 2 options:
1. Write down the exact file path & install version - return to the Forum & type that information.
2. Take a screen shot & publish that.
