An insecure flash player says the file was
c:\windows\system32\macromed\flash\Flash10b.ocx

but they are in directory
c:\windows\sysWOW64\macromed\flash

After downloading the update, I rescanned and it was still there.
A reboot and rescan got rid of it.

If your program can find bad versions, why can't it know where they actually are? It would be nice if one could right click a link to the proper directory for them? But maybe that would be too dangerous for most users.
