Don't know if this is the right forum. I ran a scan and it informed me I had 6 insecure programs, 4 end-of-life and both Firefox and IE 8 were insecure with no solution. I applied solutions and now am down to 1 end-of-life program (MSN Messenger 7.x). I applied the solution four X to no avail. Then I went in and uninstalled Windows Live 3 X. Reinstalled Windows Live 3 X and cannot seem to get this fixed. I used Revo Installer to uninstall and it had 6,655 registry entries. I had to uninstall Messenger after uninstalling Windows Live. Re-scanned after each attempt to uninstall. It finally uninstalled. But it still shows up on PSI. Does anyone have an idea of where I go now. I need Windows Live.
[b]C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger\msnmsgr.exe[b]

Also, it says that both Firefox and IE 8 are not secure. Do I need to uninstall and re-install both of them? I'd appreciate any and all help as I have spent half a day on this.

This is a duplicate post - a possible solution is posted here:

A Secunia Official may lock this for U tomorrow.

Maurice has already posted a possible solution in your other thread:

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/467...

As there's no need to have two separate/identical threads going, Secunia will probably lock this so that you can continue to use the other thread if you still have problems - or if you wish to "Accept" Maurice's suggestion.

Hoping this makes sense to you!

As far as I can see, what I said in my previous post was totally correct, so
why has it received -3 marks, please?

Is this a Secunia score?

I want to know, if only so ensure that I don't do the same thing again.

We do not give -points for posts like this. And I agree, your post was relevant :-)

It must've been some other users that gave you those points.

thank you. I usually accept scores - they reflect what the "viewer" thinks - but I just wanted to make sure I wasn't breaching any protocols
