I have a couple of updates which seem to never finish.

These are:

Adobe AIR 3.x
Adobe Flash Player 11.x (ActiveX)
Adobe Flash Player 11.x (NPAPI)
FileZilla 3.x
OpenOffice.org 3.x
Oracle Java JDK 1.7.x/7x. (64bit)
Oracle VirtualBox 4.x (64bit)
Wireshark 1.x

Are these known issues? What can I do about it? Any log files to watch? Do it manually?

They are well documented issues for some.

I would manually install from the vendor site.

For example: Wireshark

I installed the 64bit version now manually. During the installation an old versioin of Wireshark got uninstalled automatically.

Although I don't have a directory c:\Program Files (x86)\Wireshark any longer
(this is virtually c:\Programme (x86) ), Secunia PSI still claims that there is an existing version 1.6.16.49835 of Wireshark.exe in C:\Program Files (X86)

EDIT: BTW, where do I find Secunia PSIs' version information? Does Secunia PSI update itself automatically?

Christoph,
The change log is here:

http://secunia.com/products/consumer/PSI/sys_req/

PSI does not update itself.

WireShark.

Try a full PSI rescan. Does it still show that path to the old version?

To all, who replied: I solved it to the most extent manually but I'm still stuck at some issue with
Adobe Flash Player 11.x.

Although I installed Adobe Flash 11.x manually Secunia PSI still say it sees an outdated

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\Flash32_11_9_90 0_117.ocx

DELETING A FILE OR FOLDER

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.
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\Flash32_11_9 _90 0_117.ocx

6. Right click on that file & select delete.

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

VERSION 3

Open PSI>once open select Show Programs.

U will now see a page full of programme icons or a list.

Right click on the icon that represents the programme in error>select Show Details - that will open a box showing the path & version number of the offending file.

Double click on C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\Flash32_11_9 _90 0_117.ocx

That will open Windows Explorer & U will see that file. Right click on it & select delete.

Run a full PSI scan & the problem should be resolved.

You mean simply deleting the file is the remedy? Who tells me that the file isn't a registered COM object and may be still used by some program or the system?

And besides this: I cannot delete said file. Probably have to unregister it first. But shouldn't do the update process of Adobe Flash this automatically?

? No idea what you mean.

The reason an old file has been left behind is because you had something running using Flash when you updated.

Just delete it & all will be in order.

The system doesn't let me delete the file, not even in administrative mode.

I also tried regsvr32 /u Flash32_11_9_900_117.ocx

It said it had successfully unregistered the file but refuses stubbornly to let me delete the file.
I also tried in Windows 7 safe mode to no avail. Also had Avira virus scan disabled while doing this.

This problem is well documented on this Forum.

You must close down all processes that are using Flash before deletion. If you still cannot get it to work use the Adobe uninstaller from here:

http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-f...

Run a full PSI scan to check it has removed all the elements.

Reinstall Flash from here:

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
