Hello;

I am a newbie here with moderate computer skills. After taking care of several issues following the installation of PSI, I find myself with this one remaining: Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) 6.x 6.20.1076.0. The installation path is C:\found.000\dir0001.chk\cf8ec753e88561d2ddb53e183 dc05c3e\msxml6.dll

To be perfectly frank, my computer knowledge is such that I haven't a clue as to how to proceed from here and in searching other posts on this subject either I missed a previously posted solution, in which case I apologize, or this is just a different variation.

I've checked Microsoft's updates, as well as running the automatic updater and can't find a solution that works. Of course, I could be daft and missing it entirely.

If one of you more knowledgeable folk out there would be so kind as well as patient and assist me in sorting this out, I would be very grateful.

Gerry

Hi Gerry;

This has come up before. Secunia has provided very useful information to get started with.

=======
If not already, please run PSI in Advanced Mode.

To do this click on the PSI icon, in the system tray, to open the interface. In the top right corner, is "SIMPLE" blue in color and "ADVANCED" black? If not, click on "ADVANCED".

Click on the "Insecure" tab, Click on the [+] to the left of the program in question. (See *Note below)

In the "Toolbox" click on the "Technical details" icon. Listed under "Version Detected:" it shows the old version PSI is reporting. The "Installation Path" is where PSI is finding the old stuff.

To go there, click on the "Open Folder" icon. This will open the folder where the old file(s) is(are).
=======

*Note: To follow Secunia's suggestions, read information in the box titled, "Extra Information / Known Issues..." In the stuff you just opened up by clicking the [+] . If it doesn't help you to solve the problem, or if you resolve it, please post here with the results..

To get further input from other 'helpers', please post the following:

1) Version of insecure program.
2) Installation path (I know you already did, please do again).
3) OS being used, including Service Pack (if any) & 32 or 64 bit.


Regards;

Fred

The found.xxx files are generated by Scandisk and Chkdsk when there has been a file system corruption. Usually they can be safely deleted.

Thank you for you assistance and suggestions. I was operating in the advanced mode. I clicked on the suggested solution which opened Microsoft's auto-update, which found no critical up-dates nor any other update related to the program/issue Secunia had alerted upon.

Thank you also for your assistance and suggestions. I did as you advised and deleted the questionable file. I did have a problem last New Years Eve where several system files somehow became corrupted resulting in the BSOD. I don't recall the particular files but I managed to reboot into the safe mode and get things back to normal finding a restore point that actually worked. I imagine if I hadn't give Secunia a try, I'd still be blissfully ignorant of the problem.

I ran a new Secunia scan and all is as it should be and everything seems to be working.

I appreciate both of your assistance in sorting this out.
