I use a PC so why does Secunia show Apple Quicktime 3.0 as a security threat on my PC? Unable to access "Resolution." How do I get rid of this?

Depends where the files or folders are.

Is it not in Control Panel>add\Remove? If so uninstall it.

If not what is the path?

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.

You seem to be surprised that you have Apple software on a PC. Quicktime is installed on many PCs in order to play Apple media formats. It is required for iTunes. Many computer manufacturers preinstalled it. The current version is 7. Yours must have been on your PC for some time.

This is a fairly new pc. I have thoroughly searched the "C" drive, as well as doing a "Search" and the software just isn't there.

Thanks for the information that an Apple program can be installed on an IBM clone. Didn't know that. I do not use/have an iPod.

Thanks, Maurice.

Sorry to be a dullard, but what/where will I find the Advanced interface?


When I know that, I will follow your instructions to find out where that file is.

@Nunish

SETTING UP PSI IN THE ADVANCED MODE
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1. Open PSI by clicking the System tray icon or right click the icon & select Reload Interface.

2.Select the OVERVIEW tab.

3. In the top right corner U will see INTERFACE MODE - SIMPLE/ADVANCED. To be in the advanced mode the word SIMPLE should be blue and advanced black.

4. If advanced is blue click it. A message about advanced users may appear - ignore it - using the advanced mode is easy.

This thread may also be of help in understanding the advanced mode:
