After the first scan, Secunia recommended 5. installations.
for the following programs:

Adobe Reader 9.x

Adobe Reader 9.x

Apple QuickTime 7.x

iTunes 8.x

Mozilla Firefox 3.0.x

Firefox is actually uninstalled. The 4 other programs were installed.
After this installation, a new scan was performed with Secunia and again, it found the same 5 programs.
This does not make sense to me.

Hello Ove ,

If PSI says it has found something , it has ; whether what is found is a problem depends .

For someone to help , you need to do the following :-

1)use PSI in "advanced" mode ;
2)in the "settings" tab make sure that the box in the first/upper section is NOT ticked in order to have the maximum info available ;
3)tell us in which "tab(s)" your problem programme is located ;
4)in that tab , click on the + in the box at the left end of the programme , the page will expand ;
5)in the expanded page , tell us what is written in the "installation path" ;
6)in the "toolbox" section , lower down , the link "technical details" should confirm the installation path details ;
7)click on the link "open folder" and you will see more details concerning the location of the "problem" .

If you are unable to resolve the problem yourself , all this info should allow someone on the forum to help/advise you .

take care
Anthony

PS: your "user name" seems to be an email address - this will get you tons of spam or worse using it on a forum !! You can use the "secunia profile" tab in PSI to change your "user name" .
