If this is in the wrong forum, I am sure someone will tell me as I do not know what PSI, CSI, OSI or any of that other stuff means.

Secunia keeps saying that Chrome (C:\Documents and Settings\Cheryl\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\5.0.375.99\chrome.d ll ) is insecure yet Chrome says I have the latest version. It tells me Apple Quicktime is insecure and there is no solution, and Adobe Flash Player 10.x (C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\Flash10e.ocx ) is insecure, but I have already removed and replaced the old version using the tool Adobe provides for removing the software.

Yes, I have rescanned my machine just before writing this.

All of these activities were done w/in the last week.

This is driving me crazy! Thank you for any help.

Hi Cheryl.

Regarding PSI/OSI etc, take a peek here:

http://secunia.com/products/consumer/compare/

Flash really is a pain - as you will see from the number of threads here!
One major factor is that all applications running Flash have to be closed when installing the latest version, or it won't uninstal properly. This includes Secunia so make sure the icon isn't showing.

Maurice Joyce, a regular here, has prepared a full procedure sheet for Flash (& many other programs). To keep it simple for now, I won't repeat it at this stage but here's an extract that may help you:

*****************************
1. Double check your browser(s), PSI & Messenger are closed.
2. Navigate to:
32 Bit Systems - C:\Windows\system32\Macromedia\Flash
64 Bit Systems - C:\Windows\sysWOW64\Macromedia\Flash

In these locations U may well find these entries:
FLASH10D or E.OCX - Right click & delete it.
FLASH10H.OCX - The latest version which should be retained.
*****************************

There are known issues with Chrome - I'll let a Chrome user answer that part of your question.

Hoping this helps for now!

Two more suggestions for you, Cheryl:

(1) When you reply, please tell us what PC/operating system etc you have, as I have done in my signature. This will help us help you fix your problem.

(2) What version of Secunia are you using? It's shown in the bottom-right of the main Secunia screen.

I (and many others here) have Secunia PSI v1.9x which has an Auto-update facility for some programs with a past history of vulnerabilities.

If you go to this link

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/444...

you will see what the TP version does, and the background/rationale. This will not only help you understand what it’s about but it will also show you where/how to download the latest version of PSI v1.9x

When you’ve installed it, you’ll see a new tab “Auto-Updates” on the main Secunia page, between "Overview" and "Insecure". This has a list of programs that will be auto up-dated when you "tick the box".

Hoping this helps.

Excellent news, Cheryl!

As you're "on a roll", let's try & sort out Chrome. It could be zombie files so take a peek at this thread:

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/474...

This looks to be the problem - in your first thread you say the version is 5.0.375.99 but in your last one you say it's 5.0.375.125

Also this one gives a full explanation:

If this has helped you resolve your problem, please lock this thread by hitting the “ACCEPT” button. (This is only available to you, the originator of this thread).

This will also block any further system-generated update emails.

If you're still having problems, let us know!
