Running Vista, Secunia OSI consistently reports my Adobe Reader as 8.2.0.81, indicating that the latest version is now 8.2.1. I have downloaded and run the update for 8.2.1, but the OSI warning still persists. When I launch Adobe Reader and click About, it reports the version as 8.2.1. I have noted that the file indicated in the OSI results
(D:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe)
has properties identifying it as 8.2.0.81. What is going on?

If your operating system is installed on the C: drive like most people's, this is probably part of an old backup.

Hello and welcome, ghborrmann.
This appears to be a common problem. Until an expert comes along, have you tried using the Search facility? There are many previous problems/solutions posted there e.g. http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/121...

Hoping this helps for now.

@ddmarshall is correct. The D drive on an OEM version of Windows is noramally D & could well have a copy of Adobe.

If the drive is a pertition or back up just create an ignore rule - everything is perfectly safe.

CREATING A GLOBAL IGNORE RULE
=============================

1.Click on the SETTINGS tab>scroll to the bottom & click on CREATE IGNORE RULE

2.In the RULE NAME BOX insert something like MY BACKUP DRIVE

3.In the RULE BOX type D:\ (or the drive letter U wish to ignore)

4.Click SAVE IGNORE RULE>CLOSE

All drives will continue to be scanned by default but the result from the drives ignored will not be published.

If this post has solved your problem could you please select the ACCEPT option. This will lock the thread and stop you & I from receiving unnecessary update emails.

No, the file detected is not a vestigial remnant from an older version, but the only version on my computer. I chose to install Adobe Reader to the D: partition, and that is the version which has been affected whenever I have updated in the past. As I mentioned earlier, the program reports itself as Version 8.2.1 when I click on "About Adobe Reader 8..", although clicking on "Properties" from Windows Explorer shows the version as 8.2.0.81. Re-running the update has no effect. I have verified (using Task Manager) that the file which gets executed when I launch a PDF file is the one on D:.

Are U saving the download to desktop & then installing from there or changing the direction of the installation to go to the D drive?

By default Adobe will put it to the default location on the C drive.
