Hi. You say it's shown as End-of-Life so I presume that's what your Secunia scan reported.

If you follow these steps, you should be able to resolve the problem:

Surprised to see that U have had PSI installed for so long & this has only just shown up.

What path does PSI give U?


FINDING A FILE PATH

From the DASHBOARD page click on SCAN RESULTS.

1. This will list all your programmes with a + to the left of each one.
2. Click the + sign next to the item that U want help with.
3. This will reveal the path under DETECTED INSTANCES.
4. Highlight it then copy (CTRL+C) then paste (CTRL+V)) that path back to the Forum.
OR THIS METHOD WHICH GIVES A HELPER MORE INFORMATION
4a Below DETECTED INSTANCES you will see You can double click this row for additional information & options>double click it>a box will appear>click TROUBLESHOOT REPORT>Now highlight the information revealed from START to END & copy it (CTRL+C) then post it to the Forum (CTRL+V)

The end result U post to the Forum should look like this:

Totally irrelevant comment & factually incorrect.

Microsoft will continue to support Windows XP via Windows Update until April 2014. Details here:

That is an old OCX file.


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\System32\Macromed\Flash\SWFlash.ocx, version 5.0.42.0

6. Right click on it & select delete MAKING sure U EXIT all BROWSERS or anything using Flash first.

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

Helen,
If U are happy that U can fix it I will lock this thread for U in a few hours time unless U post back asking for it to be left open.

This will protect your mail box from possible update emails from Forum "tag on" posts & more irrelevant comments

You can of course lock your own threads yourself. Just click the ACCEPT button in the post of the helper who offered U the best solution/advice to solve your problem.

Secunia Support can always reopen threads by applying by email to: support@secunia.com
