My scan today 2security weaknesses.
(1)Microsoft Office 2003>update MS office powerpoint
11.0.5703.0
Symantec Norton Antivirus 12.05.3 2006

Although these updates are present, the programs have not been on my computer since the initial purchase.

If Secunia has found these files those programmes (or remnants of them) are installed on your PC.

What are the paths to the insecurities? Are they in a reinstall partition of your C drive or in folder C:\i386?

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

If these programs were a manufacturers (OEM) install & you removed them; they may be in a backup location (ie) drive d: or i386. It would be safe to create a ignore rule in PSI Advance interface. The programs are not in use so no damage should be incurred. The only way they would be used is if the backup were used to do a reinstall.

Sorry fo crosspost Maurice-I'm a slow thinker & even slower typist. Cheers
