Hi 1jckinnick & welcome to the Forum

The most common mistake when typing a path name is to use the
widely supported forward slash instead of Micro$hafts backslash.
The path name must be typed exactly as shown.

Is this the 'old' thread you were referring to? http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/204...

Hope this helps.

Regards, wr

Hi 1jckinnick;

This may help you to 'discover' the problem yourself.

=======
If not already, please run PSI in Advanced Mode.

To do this click on the PSI icon, in the system tray, to open the interface. In the top right corner, is "SIMPLE" blue in color and "ADVANCED" black? If not, click on "ADVANCED".

Click on the "Insecure" tab, Click on the [+] to the left of the program in question.

In the "Toolbox" click on the "Technical details" icon. Listed under "Version Detected:" it shows the old version PSI is reporting. The "Installation Path" is where PSI is finding the old stuff.

To go there, click on the "Open Folder" icon. This will open the folder where the old file(s) is(are).
=======

If you click on the "Open Folder" icon mentioned above you can see 'whats up' with the ActiveX control in question. (i.e. two or more with different dates)

Sorry if this is not much help. I'm short on time and won't be back until Sunday afternoon (my time, central daylight savings - US). I'll subscribe to this thread and if not resolved by then, I will be happy to help.


regards;

Fred

If U check this thread U will see the solution U have found works.

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/235...

As @wr suggests it is just a matter of typing the syntax in the correct way.

Navigate to:

c:\windows\downloaded program files

Look for an Ebay entry - if it is not obvious Right click on each entry & select Properties. Eventually U will find it.

It is that file entry U require to insert to complete the syntax.

If U continue having difficulty use this tool:

REMOVING STUBBORN FILES (INCLUDING ACTIVEX)
*******************************************
This tool has only be tested using the XP OS. It does not work with Windows 7.

Install & retain a magic tool called MoveOnBoot. The programme is registered with PSI so U can track it for vulnerabilities.

The download link is here:
http://www.softwarepatch.com/software/moveonboot.h...

Like any "freebie" programme U install watch out for the "elephant traps" to scan or download other unwanted rubbish on the web page. Look for, & install from this link only on the web page.

File Size
0.5MB

File Name
moveonb.msi

[Click here to Download]


Once installed it works flawlessly in the background giving U the additional option to navigate to ANY FILE (not folder) and, on the RIGHT click of the mouse select DELETE OR MOVE A FILE ON NEXT BOOT.

JUST SELECT THE ACTIVE X U FOUND EARLIER RIGHT CLICK>SELECT DELETE>REBOOT & THE VULNERABILITY IS HISTORY.
