G'day fellow forum members.

I was wondering if anyone might be able to explain the following to me (I'll try to keep it brief):

Prior to installing my latest fresh copy of 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium on my notebook I made a full copy of the www file of WAMP Server for backing up my web development work which I then stored on a thumb drive.

This was roughly a month back now.

Since then I have required a FAT 32 formatted drive for other purposes so I found my thumb drive with the least amount of files stored and temporarily transferred those files onto the notebook hard drive, one of these files being the www WAMP backup folder as previously mentioned.

I noted after performing a PSI scan that it reported PHP, MySQL & Apache versions being outdated, however these are only backup files and no installation of the software in mention has been performed.

Any ideas why this is and what files PSI is reading to assemble the report?

I should mention that I am not overly concerned since I have moved the files (incl. www) back to the thumb drive, rescanned with PSI and got the 100% tick of approval.

I guess this is curiosity more than anything else but if you have some input then please chime in on the conversation.

Thanks all.

Is the following from the FAQ any help ? :-
The Secunia PSI has detected a program somewhere on my computer, but where?

To locate a detected program via the Secunia PSI, please do the following.

Secunia PSI 3.x
Right-click on the software you want to check. Select "Show details". Double-click the file location.

Secunia PSI 2.x
Go to "Scan Results" and click the “+” character next to the relevant program. Then click the yellow “Open folder” icon.

Secunia PSI 1.x
In the upper right corner click "Advanced" and "Ok" to the message box. Go to the tab where the relevant program is currently showing up. Click the “+” character next to the relevant program and then click “Open Folder”.

If you have followed the steps above you should now see the folder on your computer where the detected program is located. The Secunia PSI has also showed you the exact installation path and the name of the detected file. To examine the file you can right-click on it and choose Properties. The tabs should now show you the same information that the PSI is detecting including product name, product version etc.

You should also be able to omit a drive from scanning if you Settings....and also ignore a detection.

Hope it helps....regards.........

Thanks very much for the reply

I will check out your suggestions and see how I go

Guess I will also need to follow my own advice as I have mentioned to certain others and check out the FAQ as you have suggested - oops - my bad.

Again - thank you for the input.
