I received an update to Picassa.......updated to latest version. Ran a scan and it states I'm OK. But each time I boot up, it's back again, telling me to download the latest upgrade, which I have done twice now?? Appreciate your help please.

Hi branmin

There's a possibility that the new update has created a new file (which is secure) and still left the old file which PSI is picking up as insecure.

To check (and action):

- use PSI in Advanced mode (top right of window)
- from the tabs along the top, choose Insecure
- on l.h.s. of listing for Picassa click "[+]"
- from the Toolbox icons, select Open Folder
- this takes you to file location of Picassa (in Windows Explorer)
- if you see both the old version number and the updated version number, you can delete the old, insecure version number (highlight, right click and delete)
- this goes to Recycle bin, where it may need further deleting (PSI also reports any insecurities found here)
- if after a short while a pop-up bubble from the PSI tray icon doesn't report the change (depending if Program monitoring is enabled), you should re-boot and re-scan PSI

If this doesn't clear the problem. or if you have any questions, post back here.

Thx so much for your prompt reply...........went to advanced and was surprised to see 5 more end of life or security patches to be secured(not shown up on the simple version) and didn't see Picasa mentioned at all? However, did what you recced, found older versions and that seemed to do the trick by going back to the simple version.
However, cannot for some reason download an adobe upgrade needed in advanced? I think I like Simple:-)))

Secunia is excellent overall and again, thx so much for your help.

Managed to remove most threats apart from one that I believe is linked to IE8 which I am not using.......interesting though that the Simple Format shows different threats to the Advanced Mode? So I will just have to switch to both occassionally..no big deal.
