Hi,

Google Picasasa is not insecure, but End-Of-Life, meaning the vendor no longer supports it. This also implies that you cannot update the program - To keep the PSI from showing an alert, you will have to uninstall the old version. Our solution link provides you with Picasa version 3, as this version is the most recent, and is still supported by the vendor.
This will probably cause two detectings for Picasa, 2.x as end-of-life, and 3.x as patched.

hope this helps.

BUT, if you uninstall the old version of Picasso 2.x before installing the latest version of Picasso 3, WILL ALL OF THE PHOTOS ON 2.X BE LOST?

Thank you

This is for Emil:

Emil, I uninstalled Google Picasa 2.x before I installed Picasa 3.x and on every PSI scan it still tells me Picasa 2.x is insecure.
What do I do now?

Hi,

If, after running a rescan, the PSI still claims an installation of Picasa 2.x is present, this means there is a file for the PSI to be picking up. To see what the PSI is detecting, navigate to the insecure entry for the program, click "+" next to it to expand. The field "Installation Path" is the location of the detected file.
Could I ask you to post the Installation Path of the detected installation here?

hope this helps.

Emil,
I read your last message and went into explore all users(right click on start) and found under program files a Picasa 2.x listing. When I hit the + it opened up and among many listings I saw a Picasa 2.x exe. Although I uninstalled 2.x before I deleted this entry of Picasa 2.x. I ran a scan again and it came up no insecure programs on my PC.
I want to thank you for your help.

No. I uninstalled Picasa 2.x and with Picasa 3.x I still have all my photos.

If it helps , Picasa is an organiser for viewing your photos . It will trawl your computer and make available all your images together for you in one place for your ease of access , plus all it's other uses like editing ,posting to web album , etc.

The originals will still be in the folder(s) file(s) where you put them ; if you click to view the originals ; depending on your settings , Picasa can also act as the viewer for these originals .

Removing the Picasa software will not delete your originals ; the same should apply to other "organiser" software .

Note , when you edit your images (according to your software/settings) you may be asked if you wish to alter the original as well .

Hope this is helpful .

Anthony

PS : Remember rules N 1 , 2 and 3 , if you cannot afford to lose something loaded on your computer , back it up (at least once) .
