I ran a PSI scan that said there were 10 (ten) programs out of date, but it only listed one program icon: Skype. I tried scanning again-same result. What is going on here? What are the other 9 out dated programs and where are they listed in PSI? Thanks!

@Lyn12345

Could it be you've got more old instances of Skype on your pc that psi is detecting ? Zombie files ?

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.

Sometimes, tho' programs have been updated....the older version gets left behind....It happens with Chrome most notably.....the previous version/s need to be deleted manually.

Hope it's of some help....regards...mogs...........

That's a great thought..I'll check it out after the holiday (PC belongs to someone in an office-which is closed today). Thanks much!
