I am beyond frustrated trying to fix this problem when I do run what it tells me I end up with the same threats. Nothing seems to work for this and I don't have time to try to deal with it. Please help...

If I'm not mistaken Adobe flash and reader all have UNPATCHED exploits out.
Adobe has not issued a patch to repair.

Perhaps that is why your having a problem with the recurring alert from Secunia.

On my systems I removed all copies of Adobe reader due to the CONSTANT
problems they have.
In my case a suitable replacement reader for pdf was Foxit reader. It has
far less problems reported to date. It is a possible fix for your dilemma.

One thing to learn if your new is to use the 'technical details' and more important
Online References buttons on the Secunia PSI report for any program. Read the advisory and all can be revealed.

I hope this helps some.

Just a user.

This might help U decide on the best option. I would certainly advise dumping Adobe.
