Why, after downloading and installing updates to insecure files, does Secunia continue to show the same insecure files although they have been replaced by the updates?

Hi, Alec
Just because a program has been updated doesn't mean the old program was deleted or overwritten by the update. Be advised to use PSI in the Advanced mode. Then you can use it (PSI) to help identify those files that need to be manually removed. Click on the + sign to expand & this will show the installation path. Remember this & close & click folder, you can then delete, rescan program, & hopefully everything will be OK. Sometimes it may be necessary to use a 3rd party application such as
Revouninstaller to accomplish this. This is a free all-in-one uninstaller, it removes all files, folders, even registry items.http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_fr... Good luck & remember there's plenty of help on this forum besides my input.




To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, please follow there guidelines using the
ADVANCED interface:
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
* Click on the + sign of the programme to “expand’ it.
* Click on Technical Details in the Toolbox to see the installation path of the detected file.
* Remember the installation path and close down the menu.
* Click Open Folder and locate the detected file.

Regards,
wr
