Scanning with OSI my system is OK but with PSI there is no way to make Firefox 3.6.3 secure even as I downloaded it several times

Hi colesterol

Are you using the PSI in the Advanced mode? If not you should
& don't be intimidated by the notice when you click Advanced.
The Advanced mode covers more programs & should you need help
diagnosing a problem there's plenty of help here on the Forum.

I use Firefox & v.3.6.3 is the latest secure version of Firefox. This
should show in the Patched tab with a cat4 rating if not patched.
It should also show under the Secure Browsing tab outlined with a
green border. That's if you don't have any add-ons or extensions
that are not patched-but Firefox itself is secure.

To be sure you have the latest version under the Help tab in Firefox
click Check for updates-you should get a answer almost immediately
whether Firefox is up-to-date or not.

The only other thing I can think of is that the PSI is detecting remnants
from an earlier version of Firefox that wasn't cleared out when an
update was done. This would be highly unlikely though as when Firefox
updates itself automatically (by default) all old files are overwritten or deleted.

Hope this helps.

Regards, wr

I followed your advices(Thanks) and PSI found 5 insecured programs
but using the vendors contact to download the requested updates did not change anything
In the case of Firefox the PSI finds 3.6.2 while the control panel shows version 3.6.3 as installed.
Now I am not sure of anything.

Hi

First please give us more info-as an example of the info needed look at the
bottom of my post-this is named the signature line & this is displayed every time
you post to the Forum. Any & all info is needed so that we can advise correctly
to help with your problem(s).

I'm currently in the process of relocating my residence & will be away from the comp part of today (23 April) but hope to be 'up & running' by 2:00pm (14:00) EDST.

You may want to start on the Firefox problem by finding v. 3.6.2 & deleting it.
Restart after deleting & rescan to be sure all remnants were cleared.

Then you can list the other programs & indicate if they are Insecure
or End of life so we can either patch or delete them.

Regards, wr

@colestorol
Did you try a full rescan after installing the patched? The "program monitor" feature should hopefully "catch" all new installations, but a full scan is still the definitive authority.

If this is a new problem, could you try reinstalling the PSI?

I uninstalled(using revo uninstaller) Mozilla Firefox and all the other programs deemed insecure as foxit reader,adobe shockwave player,adobe get plus dlm and adobe reader and then using IE 8 reinstalled all them including PSI
Now the only program unsupported is media player classic 6.4.9.1 which seems to be the last edition and could no be secured.
I only can say that I found remains of firefox 3.0 and before so any update of firefox does not make good "housekeeping
Thanks for all the help
