Do some one know how to remove the old PhotoUploader and ImageUploader ?

I have installed the new one by using Facebook, but still the old one is not removed (in fact ir is 2 programs)

If I opend the map, it isnt posible to remove anything in this map, and the imageuploader is not visible.

Hi, Olaf. I've had (possibly) the same problem. Take a look at this thread to see if it is the same:

Try opening a command prompt AS ADMINISTRATOR. Change directory to the file location. Delete the file using the DEL command.

E.g.:
C:\> cd\windows\downloaded program files\
C:\> del photouploader5.ocx

To open a command prompt as administrator, right-click on the Command Prompt icon in the Accessories folder (Start -> Program Files -> Accessories -> Command Prompt) and choose 'Run as administrator'. (Note: My OS is Vista, so I've written this assuming the same for you.)

Sorry this didn't work for you. My reply was how I solved the problem on my computer. A rescan of my computer confirmed that the issue was resolved.

Use "Disk Cleanup" in Windows making sure to check the box next to "Downloaded Program Files", this will remove the "Facebook Photo Uploader 5 Control", rerun SPSI and you'll find the alert is gone.

Hope this helps.

Now the older uploader are histori. I cleaned up the disk, that removed one of the 2 files. Then I saw, that Secunia has add more information. On Vista it is nessecerry to run the DOS command as administrator. I didnt know that "trick".
Now it was posible to delete the other one.

Last edited on 25th Feb, 2010 09:11 Hi,

ActiveX Controls are located in “C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files\”

On Windows XP and Vista:
Looking in this folder will NOT display the files the PSI detects. Instead, use the Command Prompt to see the content of the folder and locate the insecure files.
If a Solution Download link is not available and you can't replace the old files with the patched one, a possible solution could be to remove the insecure files from the system, and let the website that needs them install the needed files next time you visit the page that uses the ActiveX Control. Please note that deleting files may cause some programs to loose functionality

Command Prompt Guide:

(On Windows XP only)

Go to “Start” --> “All Programs” -->; “Accessories” -->; “Command Prompt”

(On Windows Vista only)

Go to “Start” -->; “All Programs” -->; “Accessories” -->;, right click the “Command Prompt” Program and run as admin

A black windowbox should now appear.
Type: cd “c:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files\”

To see the content of the folder, type: dir

You should now be able to see the files with their filenames and file extension (such as .dll or .ocx)

To delete files type: del filename.fileextension
Example: del ActiveX.ocx

On Windows 7:
With Windows 7 you can now see the files as normal files (.dll, .ocx, etc.)
Simply replace the needed files or delete them if needed.

Just a quick comment to say thanks, this worked fine and removed the uploader without using the command line. Excellent.
