Secunia psi is detecting Adobe AIR and saying it needs an update. I'm pretty sure this is a program I removed some time ago. When I go to Add/Remove Programs Adobe AIR is not listed. When I go to C/Program Files/Common Files I do find it there. Can someone tell me what is going on with this? What is this related to? Do I need this?

U almost certainly downloaded this with a piece of freebie bloatware called Adobe Reader.

Do U need Adobe AIR? Read all about it.
http://www.adobe.com/products/air/

Below is a previous post of mine that may be helpful.


If like many U only use Adobe Reader to read web pages & email attachments in the PDF format U only require a reader.

The updated Adobe (9.1) has put 3 elements in add/remove
Adobe Reader
Acrobat.com
Air
in all a total of 41.1MB!

Foxit Reader which does the same job is about 4MB

If U prefer Foxit U can uninstall all 3 Adobe elements and still read any PDF document perfectly.

I tried Foxit. It didn't work on my computer. However, I know I this Adobe Air was previously listed in my Remove Programs in Vista and I uninstalled it. So now, how do I get rid of it?

I just uninstalled the Adobe Reader and reinstalled it and then updated the darned Adobe AIR. Space isn't a problem for me right now so I figured that would be the easiest way to go. The link you gave me was for uninstalling Java.
