Secunia shows Firefox 3.7 installed and insecure.
Firefox Help shows version 3.0.8 is installed as does Add/Remove programs.

Have Secunia rescan your programs. Then it will show that Firefox is updated to 3.08.

I have the same problem on Vista 32 bit system. Have installed again and scan will still not pick it up. It says Firefox 3.x and level 4 security threat but i have latest 3.0.8 installed. Have made repeated scans and will not find report correctly. First update to 3.0.8 was done before secunia listed it as a threat (normal update from FF).

You can create an ignore rule for F:, if you don't have any current programs installed on it.

See: http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal...

At the same time, I would make sure your C: drive is working properly. Sounds like it's going to crash soon, so you may have to replace it.

Best Wishes,
Kurosh
