Hi kennethv & welcome to the Forum

Is Adobe Reader 9.x listed under the Patched, Insecure, or End of Life tab?
If it's showing in the Patched tab, then you've done all you can do. The cat4 rating is showing because if the program wasn't patched that would be its
vulnerability.

Hope this helps.

Regards, wr

Thanks wr.

The security threat is listed as insecure program. The update did install, but the threat is not removed.

You're welcome

Try this: 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 program to expand it.
2 Click on Technical Details in the Toolbox to see the installation path of the detected file. You can then right click & choose delete. Reboot & rescan to make sure
that all remnants have been removed.

Hope this helps.

Regards, wr
