When I updated Opera to ver 21, it larmed that ver 20 was not updated. I told the program to Ignore that version. Then ver. 22 came, and the same, it larmed that ver 21 was not up to date!

Why like this?

Opera 21.x

It looks like Opera is leaving dross behind after each update.

If, after a full rescan that report reappears all you need to do is remove the file manually.

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:\Program Files\Opera\21.0.1432.67\opera.exe, version: 21.0.1432.67

6. Right click on that file & select delete.

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

It is not a good idea to create an Ignore Rule for anything unless a full Risk Assessment has been carried out.
