Seconia PSI is telling me to patch 3 programs I don't have installed. How can I remove them from the scan?

If PSI has found them they are on your PC.

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.

Hi smhard & welcome to the Forum

Where are the 3 programs in question being detected? If not already
you should be using the PSI in the Advanced mode. Don't be intimidated by
the warning when you open the Advanced mode, a lot more information & help
is available here. If already in the Advanced mode are the 3 programs listed
in the End of Life tab or in the Insecure tab?

To my knowledge there are at least 3 possible places where these could be
detected. 1. In the Recycle Bin 2. OEM Backup/Recovery Drive 3. Leftover files from an incomplete uninstall.

The easiest & most simple 'fix' is to merely empty the Recycle Bin.
When in the Advanced mode you can highlight the program by clicking the
[+] to the left of the program to find the file path. You can then track
the file path & make a decision as to Ignore or delete. You can also
check to see if the 3 programs in question are in the Add/Remove so they
can be deleted there if you're sure they are no longer needed.

Hope this helps. Do post back & let us know how you get on.

Regards, wr

EDIT: Sorry Maurice you were posting while I was typing.
Please carry on & I'll step aside.

@wr,
I am off to bed. I suspect the programmes are on the OEM partition.

All yours - nice to hear from U again.
