I use IncrediMail in Vista Home. They use an old version of Flash Player, Macromedia Flash Player 7.x. This does not appear on my installed programs. Whenever PSI informs me that it is end-of-life, I follow the path where it is located and delete it. Everything's ok until I open IncrediMail again. I have Adobe Flash Player ActiveX and Plug In 10 installed.

I have written to IncrediMail about this problem but received no answer. My version of the mail program is up to date.

Kath,
Very interesting. I repaired a PC the other day with Incredimail (paid for version) installed.
I updated it to the latest version & the insecurity disappeared.

Even the old version was not 7. What is the path Secunia is showing U to the insecurity?

I have the paid version of IncrediMail - they say it is up to date.

The path is C:\User\K\AppData\local\temp\MFPL7014.DLL

Kath,
I would RIGHT click & delete that file. If Incredimail stops functioning correctly restore it from the Recycle Bin & I will think again.

That's what I do every time Secunia warns me. All goes well until I open IncrediMail again and back it comes.

I've identified it as IncrediMail causing it to appear because it only happens when I open IncrediMail. IE and other Email programs don't cause it.

Thanks for your responses.

rocketgirl523 identified the same issue, but there doesn't seem to be a fix. Unless Maurice or IncrediMail support have better ideas, you may just have to live with it. It's really up to IncrediMail to fix this problem -- however, Maurice did suggest that possibly it is fixed? You might have to remove it completely from your system and reinstall the latest version; wait and see what Maurice has to say.

Best Wishes,
Kurosh

I went to rocketgirl528 and then created an Ignore Rule. I think this will do the trick.
Thanks to you and rocketgirl for your help.

Hi Kath-don't know if this will help but it may be worth trying http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/ this is a free utility that will unlock a file so it can be repaired/deleted. I found this @ http://pchell.com/ Check out their website for how-to manually delete the file in question or use the unlocker. Creating a ignore rule for a potentially insecure program is defeating the purpose of Secunia PSI in my opinion.
Good luck & regards,
wr

@ Kurosh Saw your caution in another thread. I don't follow the golden rule of not running 2 A/V programs-therefore Sunbelt Softwares VIPRE & Esets NOD32 are installed & working together w/ no problems on my system. After seeing your caution an another thread earlier & having already visited the PCHell website I decided to scan w/ MBAM which proved futile. I had already downloaded unlocker & used it-works great. NO flame to you-just saying sometimes you have to go out on a limb-that's where the fruit is. Regarding the bloatware called IncrediMail I find it incredible you have to pay for this & they don't even provide any help? I'd drop it faster than a burning ember. But if no one else has any ideas I guess to use unlocker is at least 1 solution.

Regards, wr
