I noticed that Adobe 9 is a very dangerous program to have.
Can i fix this problem somehow?

as far as I know, Adobe is essential.

Any suggestions?

I'll give you my method for removal of old Adobe files. First open PSI & select the Advanced mode. You can then mouse over the insecure program(s) & PSI will reveal the path/file to that program. There is a selection that offers the connection to the download update; go there & do the download but save it, don't install it. Then go to http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_fr... download, install, & run this free utility to rid your computer of any unwanted program(s). Be sure to shut down PSI as it depends on Adobe, reboot, then install the update for Adobe you just downloaded. Rescan & hopefully everything will be OK. Good luck.
Regards, wr

Adobe Reader 9.1 is available now. I used 9.0 Dutch and installed 9.1
Dutch successfully. Try this: start 'check for updates' in the Help menu and you get 9.1.

A PDF reader is essential but that does not mean U have to use Adobe.

Hi Maurice. I agree that Adobe Reader is essential and that Adobe is not the only tool. But after many years using a computer I never had
a problem with Adobe Reader and up to now all new versions installed
smoothly. Just as 9.1 Dutch this morning. By the way, I very much appreciate your regular comments in this forum which are very usefull
for me!

The point is not that im not updated. Yesterday i updated to 9.1, and today it seems to be even more "dangerous" than 9.0.
I think 9.0 was a "Category 4".

And i want to keep Adobe Reader if it's possible.

Can any of you guys check if your Adobe Reader is a CAT-5 too?

Kip, if you look at your PSI, and look at tab beside the "scan"-tab, and find Adobe Reader, how many "squares" does your Adobe Reader 9x have?

Is it only me?

Don't get completely paranoid with the boxes. If you'll notice most programs from M$, Adobe, and Java are highly vulnerable. Probably because they're so popular & literally millions of these programs are in use. So when the bad guys find a weakness to go after they know they have plenty of prospects to try & hack. That you're here on this Forum speaks volumes about your concern for the security of your computer. I've found that Secunia PSI keeps me pretty well up to date on these matters. So relax a little & enjoy life while people such as these here @ Secunia help to keep us safe. No I don't have any connections with Secunia just trust.

BTW 4 out of 5 just keeps you on your toes. Regards,wr

Only one, mentioning v. 9.1 and mentioning the right path.
