Hi Everyone,

We have noted that the recent End of Life status on Macrovision Update Service ActiveX Controls have caused some issues for several users.

We recommend renaming the file first, to ensure that it does not creak any addon or program functionality if deleted, if this is the case, the file can be renamed back to the original name.

You need to rename it through the Command Prompt running with administrator privileges..
This can be done using these steps:


1. Open the start menu and search/look for the command prompt,
2. Right click the command prompt and run as administrator.
3. Type: CD /D C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files
4. Type: rename "isusweb.dll" "isusweb.dll.old"

The detected file has now been renamed to isusweb.dll.old and should no longer be detected by the Secunia PSI.

Hi all

After trying the above directions & getting to step #4
I kept getting "The file name, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect, or the syntax of the command is incorrect".
I followed M. Hansens directions thru step #3 but then typed dir instead of what's in step #4. This caused the files
to be displayed-in my case 4 total-1 of which was the file in question. I then typed with NO quotation marks rename isusweb.dll isusweb.dll.old & hit Enter.
To check if the file had been renamed I typed dir again & the file had been renamed.

Thanks for the help M. Hansen, maybe I was doing something wrong. I just wanted to post this in case
someone else was having problems.

Hope this helps.

Regards, wr

Many thanks M. Hansen for trying to help, unfortunately your suggestion didn't work for me. I'm unable to find the file.

I had been very impressed with Secunia PSI (version 3) since using the software for the past month or so.

I'm running Windows 8.1 with O/S 64bit.

Any suggestions or help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks! It worked for me and I know next to nothing about computers. I decided to use the one with no quotation marks. Thanks.
