Secunia v.3 reports that one of the programs that's up to date on my XP desktop is "comdig32" active X. What the h*** is that?

Per the topic title, "comdig32". I was curious about it because Secunia lists it as a program, but neither "Programs and Features" nor Revo Uninstaller lists it.

There's no comdig32.ocx on Secunia's product list and no search engine brings anything up apart from obvious misspellings for comdlg32.ocx. comdlg32.ocx is reported correctly on the one PC I have with it installed.
What shows when you right click it and show details?

I suspect there's a rendering problem. If you can post a screen shot somewhere like a SkyDrive public folder, it might help to solve it.

The way PSI scans files to find programs means it picks up things which are not listed in Programs and Features. Because of what I have installed, I have dozens of them.

Well, shut my mouth!!! I opened PSI to look at the details, and found that I've been wrong about the name all along. It's COMDLG32 ActiveX. Dam* these small fonts! It's in the \Windows\system32 folder.

Not sure why PSI lists it as a program, while Add/Remove programs in XP, Programs and Features in Win 7, and Revo Installer don't. It's not a case of they don't show ActiveX programs (e.g., Adobe's Flash Player ActiveX is listed); it's just that PSI lists a LOT of ActiveX programs, like XEnroll and 4 PC PitStop ActiveX's (and I don't have anything from PC Pitstop installed; must have not been cleaned out after I uninstalled one of their programs a couple of years ago).

Unlike other forums, I don't see any "mark solved" button, but I'm just accepting the fact that PSI has a different purpose than Add/Remove Programs and what the two consider "programs" will be different. Issue solved!

A pet hate of mine is technical forums using fonts where lower case L (l) looks the same as upper case i (I).
