For the past nine weeks - after PSI scans my computer I continue to get message that this program is insecure and patch needs to be installed. Have done this several times and still get same message. (rescanning after each time with same results).

This usually only comes up when PSI scans automatically once a week - but not if I go through PSI website to run scan.

Hi Donna_Secunia;

This is most likely caused by a file that's leftover after an update. Please, do the following. Post here with the version number and installation path of the insecure file.
=======
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 run a scan 'online', the OSI (Online Software Inspector) is different than PSI (Personal Software Inspector). OSI is a limited scan and is possibly missing Picasa. Here is the product comparison supplied by Secunia: http://secunia.com/products/consumer/compare/
