I am currently running Adobe Flashplayer 10 active x on my computer. I do not know if this has anything to do with the Adobe flashplayer 9x or not. I can not seem to get past a tempory file set up or what ever is happening when I try to download the patch or follow the recommendation suggested after the inital scan. I am not an experienced technical person working in the field I mean. I just got thru with a bad program download off the internet that caused me to have to reinstall windows XP and a lot of extra grief and expense on a brand new 6 month old Dell computer. I am not wanting to do something on my computer that will cause me to have this type problem very soon again. I know it is with Photoshop Elements 6 that seems to pose the security threat so how do I get a patch to work or must it come from them at Adobe or just what? Please advise. Thank you Delores Hubbell P S I did rescan my computer after that download but I do not see where it was applied only in what looked like a temporary folder which I can't locate.

Hello Delores,

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

To help resolve any 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 .

Let us know where number 9 is located by PSI .

Take care


It always seems impossible until its done.
