I upgraded my Divx player on recommendation from Secunia. It still tells me there is a problem with Divx 1.x (when moused over I see npdivx32.dll as the problem file) Warning is here:

But I've upgraded the program (Divx 7) and the Divx site tells me I have the newest version, yet the warning will not go away.

Is this a false positive or is there something I need to do other than the standard upgrade?

Try this thread and the last 4 or 5 posts dating from 14/Dec/2009 :-

Post back (here or there) and let us know how you get on .

Take care

PS : As this is your first post , I will give you some basic advice (sorry if you already know) , which may help you explain your problem to us more specifically :-

To help resolve your problem , here are some instructions to help you first of all get the best out of PSI :-

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" .

Posting these details will help the Forum help you , if/when you have a problem .


It always seems impossible until its done.

There must be remnants of the old product on your PC.


To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, use or switch to the ADVANCED interface, then :

1 Click on the + sign of the programme to "expand' it.
2 Click on Technical Details in the Toolbox to see the installation path of the detected file. (Copy (CTRL+C) & paste (CTRL+V) the Installation Path of the file back to the Forum if U are unsure what to do next)).

Thank you. That thread solved my problem. I renamed the dll to .dll_old and that eliminated the threat, and the updated program still works.

Renaming the dll file worked for me, too. Thanks.
