My Firefox is up to date with 8.0, but the scan still shows that I have 7.x installed and it is at end of life. I reinstalled Firefox and rescanned, but still got the end of life message.

Hi.

The Mozilla FireFox 8.x has been added to our database, and will now be detected after a full rescan of the system.

I'm not familiar with FF...nor the update procedure.....but , are you sure psi is not detecting FF8 as well in your Scan Results ?
It is fairly usual that older versions of progs get left behind which psi continues to detect until removed.

DELETING A FILE OR FOLDER USING PSI VERSION 2

To delete a vulnerable file or folder found by PSI try this:

1. Open PSI>Scan results.

2. Against the programme marked as vulnerable is a + sign to the left of it.

3. Click that & it will reveal DETECTED INSTANCES.

4. Below that are two yellow folders. Click the one WITHOUT a red dot.

5. That will open Windows Explorer & U will be able to see the vulnerable files or folders.
C:\Windows\ERDNT\cache\firefox.exe, version: 7.0.1.4288

6. Right click on it & select delete.

7. Carry out a full PSI scan & all should be in order.
