Hi all,

I was surprised to find the Aurigma programme on my computer. I don't remember that I ever installed it. I can also not see an option to remove it either with Windows on-board add/remove software option or Revo Uninstaller. It is not registered in there. I also could not update it via the Aurigma website as it links to a 404 site for the 4.7 version.

What do you recommend me to do to solve the problem?

Thanks for your help!

Hello.
It's not very clear from your post.....but I'm presuming you've discovered the prog on your computer....after performing a psi scan ?
If so , you can delete it using the following method :-


Deletion of an entry.

To delete a vulnerable file or folder using PSI 2 :

1. Open psi and go to Scan Results.

2. Alongside the vulnerable prog. is a "+" sign.

Clicking on that will reveal Detected Instances..

3. Below, are two yellow folders. Click the one without a red dot.
It will open Windows Explorer and you will be able to view the vulnerable files/folders.

4. Right click and delete.
Perform a full scan to confirm all in order.

Hope the foregoing is of some help.........regards,

Yes, I was not aware of it until it showed up in PSI a vulnerable.

I wonder if it is a good idea to delete a single vulnerable file manually. Aren't there many programme rests left behind if I do it this way? Not that it will make a massive difference with my old and slow computer.

It is not a programme as such - just a remnant hence it will not show in Control Panel>add/remove.

To clear the vulnerability do this:

DELETING A FILE OR FOLDER USING PSI VERSION 2

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 file.
C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\ImageUploader4.ocx, version: 4.5.50.0

6. Right click on it & select delete.

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

I contacted Aurigma and got following reply. The first option does not work as I cannot locate it amongst my IE8 add-ons and I don't know how to execute the second one. Do you know how the second option would work?


1. The first one is the way which XXX offered. However, I should
add her instruction. Please open Internet Explorer 8. Then open Tools ->
Manage Add-ons -> Show: All add-ons (see drop-down list in the bottom of the
left pane). Choose Aurigma ActiveX control in the add-on list, and remove
it.



2. If you cannot find it for some reasons, you will be able to use the
second way. Please open Command Prompt, and type the path where
ImageUploader4.ocx file locates:





C:\> cd <disk>\<.><PathToImagageUploader4.ocx>



Then unregistered it via regsvr32 -u command:



<Disk:>\<.>\<.> regsvr32 -u ImageUploader4.ocx



The ActiveX control should be uninstalled. Also, you can remove the OCX file
from this path. Usually, it locates here: C:\Windows\Downloaded Program
Files

I cannot really give a clearer definition on using the Command Prompt.

By using my post above, PSI pinpoints exactly where the file is & opens Windows Explorer for U.
There should be no requirement to open Internet Explorer.

In the right hand pane there could be numerous entries which at first glance appear Gobble de Gook.

Right click on each one & select properties. The clues to the file U want will show, for example it may contain the word Aurigma - file version 4.5.50.0 - Image Uploader.

Once identified right click on it & select delete.

A full PSI rescan will confirm U have cleared the vulnerability.

Hi ,

If memory serves , then the ActiveX installed in Downloaded Program Files can only be seen/deleted from an XP OS using the command prompt .

Perhaps Maurice Joyce or a Secunia Official could provide their script for locating and deleting the ActiveX on an XP system , as opposed to the rather cryptic one that has been offered .

Hope that helps .

Anthony

EDIT : Here is a copy of an old Maurice Joyce script :-

REMOVING ACTIVEX
=================
The traditional method to remove ActiveX is:

* * * Windows XP
++++++++++++++++


Launch the command prompt from accessories in the programs list or go to Start>run> and type cmd in the box that appears.
type: cd c:\windows\downloaded program files
press enter
type: dir
press enter
find the files you wish to remove from the list that appears
type: del now type the details of the file found above
press enter
type: exit
press enter

Dear Anthony,

Those simplified DOS instructions were exactly what I needed. I have now successfully unregistered ImageUploader4.ocx before I then deleted it. I was not sure whether this unregistration was necessary but it is better to be safe than sorry. Given that the Aurigma support suggested it, I am happy to have been able to do that as well.

Thank you very much to Maurice and you!
