I've removed everything relating to Secunia and those that are recognizable as psi for Secunia. What registry item am I missing? I can't install newer version without removing all of older version. Many thanks if you know the answer!!

perhaps a backup program contains PSI, I'll check that.

If your investigations prove negative what error message do you get when you activate this installer?

An older version of the Secunia PSI has been found on your system. In order to install PSI, all previous versions must first be removed. Click next to launch the uninstaller.

I click.

The Secunia PSI installer was unable to remove one or more previous versions of the program from this computer. Please try and remove them manually and then restart the PSI installer.

I assume you have looked in the registry for these items?

HKEY_CURRENT_USER >SOFTWARE>SECUNIA

&

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>SECUNIA
