I updated it and even the Apple Software Updater doesn't show a newer version.

No biggie just keeps popping in Secunia for me, for about a week now.

Hi Ollielu;

Sounds like you have successfully updated QuickTime. Also sound like there's some leftovers about.

=======
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).
=======

> What is the detected version & installation path for the QuickTime that PSI is finding?


Regards;

Fred

(The date on the installation of QuickTimePlayer is 3/18/2010 however.)

Apple does not show the exact version number http://support.apple.com/kb/DL837 that you show but does show 8/12/2010 to be the latest update.

> Is there a listing in PSI in the "Patched" tab for QuickTime?
> If so, delete the old version and rescan with PSI. Does this solve the problem?
> If no to either question, I suggest using Add/Remove (in the Control Panel) to remove QuickTime and download a fresh copy at the link above.

There wasn't a listing for it under "Patched".

I uninstalled and reinstalled it.

Rebooted rescanned and QT "error" gone.

Thanks much.
