Will Skype 4.x be added to the list of detected programs?

Version 4.0.0.206 Official release. Release date: February 3, 2009.

Having Applied the solution to a Skype error, it then leads me to a Skype download/install window. I already have Skype installed, hence the error. What do I have to do to clear this error?

Skype is already included in my Patched prog list.Maybe you should suggest it to monitor on your own ? The current up to date version is 4.1.0.179 ( having upgraded within the last few days). Hope the info helps.

Yes, the problem seems to be the Secunia scanner which is not detecting the fact that 4.1.0.179 is up and running rather than the version which the scanner says is present. The same thing is true for Apple QuickTime, which has downloaded a new version number higher than that reported as insecure by the Secunia scan, and for MS Silverlight, in which - again - I am running a later version than that detected by the Secunia scan. In all 3 cases, rerunning the scan fails to clear the Insecure designation and fails to report the newer versions.

Are you sure the three older versions/files have been removed/deleted ? If not, that would explain why Secunia is still detecting them.

I found the problem, and it was my fault, not the Secunia scanner. The old, bad versions were on a backup copy on a different drive, and of course they weren't going to get removed no matter how many times I updated by current operating copies of the programs! Thanks for suggesting that I look harder.
