Secunia reported that I still have Flash 9.x installed which is incorrect.
I have been through the process of using the flash uninstaller and reinstalling.

Secunia reports the file being found in these 2 places.

c:\Windows\SysWOW64\NPSWF32.dll
c:\Windows\System32\NPSWF32.dll

But when I actually try to view the file, it is not there. I tried deleting in cmd prompt (del c:\Windows\System32\NPSWF32.dll) and same thing: file not found. Tried to even use regsvr32 /u with same result. I can see hidden files, and system files are not protected so if it is really there, it should show up.... but it is not.

So now I am wondering if Secunia is stuck or if it is telling me the wrong path?

Any help would be appreciated.

My NPSW file in WIN32 is in the ->Macromedia ->Flash folder ( not the Adobe folder ) or try checking which folder your updated version is in & see if v9 has files in there - and/or try using the open folder link below the installation path.

Do you have a

C:\Windows\system32\Macromedia*\Flash\... Folder *or Adobe folder ??
Have you used the "open folder" link found below the "installation path" in PSI ??

The open folder link takes me to SySWOW64 and System32

I believe it was an issue with Secunia. I'm not sure why it thought it was located there. But this is how I fixed it:

I recopied the old dll into those folders and then let Secunia rescan them (it said they were insecure obviously). I then deleted them and now Secunia correctly sees that they are gone.

Nice call. At least you got rid of the "incriminating" evidence by "applying logic" !!
It also points up the difference between my old XP and Vista64.
Take care

Well it was in the other places that you said earlier, but the Adobe updater fixed those :P

Just the 2 places I listed earlier were having issues with Secunia.

Thanks for trying though :D
