After a recent scan I removed this program completely from my computer only to find that when I attempted to start Windows today I received a message that the viewer was absent and Windows wouldn't start. I then rebooted the computer and started windows by an alternative method. I reinstalled the SVG viewer. Windows now boots up without a problem, but the Secunia scan still shows the SVG viewer as a threat. What to do?

The "fixes" provided by Secunia in the Advanced mode don't seem to solve the problem. After searching for a replacement SVG viewer and finding nothing to replace Adobe's product, I simply "ignored" the program in the scan mode.

There seems to be no other threads in this forum with another acceptable alternative. Any suggestions? Thanks, in advance.

Thanks for your reply. There is no need for me to rename the file. I simply "ignore" it. That works fine as the swg viewer's existence poses no real threat. But, the program is essential to the operation on Win XP on my computer.

Hello;

According to Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scalable_Vector_Graph... ,


"As of 19 March 2009 (2009 -03-19)[update], Internet Explorer 8, the latest release of Windows Internet Explorer, is the only current major browser not to provide native SVG support. Internet Explorer requires a plug-in to render SVG content. There are a number of plug-ins available to assist including:

Adobe SVG Viewer from Adobe Systems plugin supports most of SVG 1.0/1.1. ... However, on 1 January 2009, Adobe Systems discontinued support for Adobe SVG Viewer.

Google Chrome Frame from Google can support all web elements supported by Webkit, including SVG 1.0 and partially SVG 1.1.

RENESIS Player 1.0 for Internet Explorer from examotion GmbH, first released on April 2008, supports SVG 1.1 on IE 6.x and 7.x and is available for download free of charge.

Ssrc SVG Plugin from Savarese Software Research Corporation is a plug-in for rendering SVG in Microsoft Internet Explorer (MSIE) versions 6, 7, and 8 on Windows XP, Server 2003, Vista, and Server 2008. In addition, the plug-in enables Internet Explorer to load Mozilla XUL applications.

Corel SVG Viewer

Batik, a widely deployed Java plugin

Bitflash, an SVG viewer intended for mobile devices, which can be installed as an IE plugin

Ikivo, an SVG viewer intended for mobile devices, which can be installed as an IE plugin

GPAC, targets SVGT 1.2"



RENESIS Player 1.0 sounds like a good deal if you go back to IE7.


good luck to all;

Fred
