Is the threat to Windows 7 or a programme?

Are U running a 32 or 64 Bit system?

I assume U have installed today's updates from MS?

FINDING A VULNERABILITY FILE PATH
=================================

To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, use or switch to the ADVANCED interface, then :

1 Click on the + sign of the programme to "expand' it.
2 Click on Technical Details in the Toolbox to see the installation path of the detected file. (Copy (CTRL+C) & paste (CTRL+V) the Installation Path of the file back to the Forum if U are unsure what to do next.

If checking file path does not work. Try this as a new fix for problems unresolved. Try running a registry cleaner and then re-scanning with Secunia.


Maurice it appears that Secunia is so sensitive that it is picking up on left overs in registry. I know you always advise to shut down and reboot to clear out ocx files but some of these uninstall programs are not working properly

@pudget
Don't pay attention to the strange votes you got for this post. I clicked the wrong button. It will be fixed ASAP, and any impact on your score will be corrected.

Some Windows Updates require you to reboot and rescan. Check Microsoft/Windows update, reboot, and recheck MS/Win update. Once you've done that, rescan. Does this solve the problem?
