Hello
My add/remove shows I have Adobe Shockwave Player 11.5.7.6
The scan keeps flagging the 10.x version
The path is C:\Win\sys32\macromed\shockwave10\SwOnce.dll
How can I correct this?

I assume you mean to follow the path I gave you and then delete it there.
Thank you for your advice.

I wanted to give you more information before I just delete it.
The path Secunia gives, after Shockwave 10 is SwOnce.dll
This does not exist on my machine.
After Shockwave 10, on my machine, there is a folder called Extras which contain:
1-autodownloadx32
2-multiuserx32
3-speechx32
4-Cbrowserx32
5-netfilex32
6-ineturlx32
7-netlingox32
Do I delte the folder caled Shockwave 10 or Extras.
Thank you

Better U follow this script - it will clear the whole lot out & give U a clean bill of health.

UPDATING SHOCKWAVE
==================

1. Uninstall Shockwave for your OS from the clearly marked link here:
http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates...

2. Reboot to clear out any left over ocx files.

3. Rescan using PSI. Are there any outstanding files that are insecure? These should be cleared out before proceeding to serial 4.In your case this means all the files U have listed in the Shockwave folder

Note 1: At this stage,if PSI finds any elements of Shockwave in the C:\i386 folder or on any drive other than C that is an OEM reinstallation partition (normally D drive) or a drive U use solely to backup your work U can safely create an ignore rule.

Note 2: The path on the C Drive to any remaining insecurity is important. Does it point to the Shockwave Player or another Adobe product that has a Flash element? If it points to Shockwave right click on the file(s) & delete them. If it points elsewhere reinstalling Shockwave will not necessarily clear the problem.

4. Reinstall Shockwave from here:
http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/

5. If you wish to test your new Shockwave Player the link is here:

http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/

I traced the path and removed Shockwave. I then downloaded the good program and that resolved the issue for Secunia.
Firefox kept appearing that it was a threat. I asked F.F. for updates and it said none. WRONG!
I had 3.6.3 and there was a 3.6.6 so Itraced that path and removed the 3.6.3.
I downloaded 3.6.6 and Secunia popped up with 100% -finally.
Thank you for your ideas.
