This is the background to FlexNet.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flexnet

It almost certainly services Adobe Acrobat 8 Std v8.3.1 therefore it would be unwise to remove it.

It looks like U do not have JAVA installed? It is part written in JAVA hence it is looking for that programme to update itself.

To successfuly install the update it looks like U require JAVA from here:

http://java.com/en/download/index.jsp

It is appreciated that many do not want JAVA on a working platform due to its appalling security record. If U are one of those U could try this:


RENAMING 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 or folder.
C:\Program Files\FLEXnet Publisher License Server Manager\Imadmin.exe

6. Right click on it & select RENAME then rename the file C:\Program Files\FLEXnet Publisher License Server Manager\Imadmin.exe-OLD

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

If there are problems running ADOBE products after this action U can simply reverse the renaming action.

From the relevancy score it looks like U are all fixed up?

On that basis, I will lock this thread for U sometime tomorrow unless U post back asking for it to be left open.
