To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, use or switch to the ADVANCED interface, then :

1 Click on the + sign of the programme to "expand' it.
2 Click on Technical Details in the Toolbox to see the installation path of the detected file. (Copy (CTRL+C) & paste (CTRL+V) the Installation Path of the file back to the Forum if U are unsure what to do next.


From the DASHBOARD page click on RESULTS.

1. This will show U the file that is vulnerable.
2. Click the + sign next to the file.
3. This will reveal the path.
4. Highlight it then copy (CTRL+C) & then paste (CTRL+V) that path back to the Forum if U do not know what to do next.

Generally, whenever you update a program; the older file/version isn't always automatically removed, and psi will continue to detect it even if still a resident of the Recycle bin. The file path to the vulnerability can be found by following Maurice's instructions in the post above.
Here are a couple of links worth perhaps bookmarking which you may also find useful :- FAQ's
It is also often helpful to provide details of your OS; browser whenever contacting the forum, as they are often relevant to resolving an issue. If you enter them in your signature field/box in My Profile ( see on left of page ); it will save having to repeat them each time. Hope this helps........regards,
