My scan revealed that this program is End of Life. How do I fix, patch or delete if not needed? Thank-you for any help.

After completing a full PSI rescan what path does PSI give you to the problem?

FINDING A FILE PATH USING PSI

VERSION 2


From the DASHBOARD page click on SCAN RESULTS.

1. This will list all your programmes with a + to the left of each programme.
2. Click the + sign next to the item that U want help with.
3. This will reveal the path under DETECTED INSTANCES.
4. Below DETECTED INSTANCES you will see this You can double click this row for additional information & options>double click it>a box will appear>look to the RIGHT & U will see TROUBLESHOOT REPORT in BLUE writing under the heading TOOLBOX> click TroubleShoot Report & it will reveal some information in a box>highlight the information revealed from ---START--- to ---END--- & copy it (CTRL+C) then post it to the Forum (CTRL+V)

VERSION 3
This version does not have such an easy method to publish the path.

Open PSI>once open select Show Programs.
You will now see a page full of programme icons or a list.
Right click on the programme in error>select Show Details - that will open a box showing the path & version number of the offending file.
You now have 3 options:
1. Write down the exact file path & install version - return to the Forum & type that information.
2. Take a screen shot & publish that.

The detected version on my system is here:

C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files\isusweb.dll

I executed

regsvr32 /u "C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files\isusweb.dll" and then deleted the file.

Note: The file automatically re-appears after some minutes.

So secunia finds a vulnerability yet has no info on how to fix the problem? I'm assuming that just deleting the dll (isusweb.dll) and removing the reference in the registry doesn't fix the problem?

I permanently deleted the file and haven't seen it pop back up yet. There is no entry in remove programs in programs and features under the control panel.

It is not part of Windows.

The file description is here:

http://www.processlibrary.com/en/directory/files/i...

The history of ownership of that file is here:

I think someone is winding you up. Windows Update works perfectly without any ActiveX from Macrovision/Rovi.

Where is the information on the web that states Microsoft use this ActiveX for Windows update? I am aware it is used by programmes such as Dragon Naturally Speaking,Coral Draw,Aconis & other programmes that use FLEXnet Connect service.

The file isusweb.dll is not in the Registry or Windows Explorer on a clean version of Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 which I have & they all work perfectly.

I have asked Secunia Support to comment on the threads that are running on this issue. They might have a link to update that you can try.

This started popping up during my scans. I see there's no solution right now. My alert says it's
"Macrovision Update Service ActiveX Control 2.x" Never saw this "End of Life" warning before today. Waiting for a solution...

Without much to go on, I did some searching. There was a process isus-something which was running from C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\InstallShield\UpdateService and if you hover the mouse over it you get the tooltip "Macrovision Software Manager". It was old (2008). If I remove all c:\Program*\InstallShield\* files, will any other program break?

Is that the path where PSI points to with their EOL advice? If not I would proceed with caution.

This one has been a huge pain in my rear for weeks now. FINALLY figured out how to kill it today.

1) Right click on Command Prompt (Start/ All Programs/ Accessories) and select Run As Administrator
2) At the flashing prompt, type "cd C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files"
3) At the flashing prompt (now in the folder above) type "dir *.*" which should reveal to you the full contents of the above folder, which is not displayed fully in Windows Explorer.
4) After confirming you have the file in your folder, type "del isusweb.dll"
5) At the prompt, type "dir *.*" again to confirm that file is now missing
6) Within 1 minute, my happy GREEN Secunia returned

Just to post an update....the above "fix" did apparently cause some issues with Windows Update (I know, none of MS materials references that DLL and it shouldn't be using it....) such that I had to run a MS FIX tool to apply this weeks updates and get things running again. Maybe coincidental with something else, but sharing a word of warning.
