FLASH

REMOVE OLD ADOBE (FORMERLY MACROMEDIA) OCX FILES.

If Flash was running when an update was attempted it will not remove all of the old (and vulnerable) files.

To remove these files:

COMPLETELY EXIT (using Task Manager if necessary:

a. All Browsers.
b. Windows Messenger.
c. Incredimail.
d. All Adobe products
e. PSI unless using Version 2 BETA.

Now navigate to here:

32 Bit Systems - C:\Windows\system32\Macromedia\Flash

64 Bit Systems - C:\Windows\sysWOW64\Macromedia\Flash

In these locations U may well find these entries:
FLASH10h or i.OCX - Right click & delete it/them.

FLASH10k.OCX - The latest version which should be retained.

Empty the Recycle Bin (or remove any Flash items from the bin) complete a full PSI rescan & all will be in order.

Original 15:41 09/10/2010

JAVA

JAVA PROBLEMS
Can be used with Windows XP,Vista & Windows 7 - 32 & 64 Bit Systems.

Go to Control Panel>add/remove.

Uninstall ALL versions of JRE or JSE or JDK or JAVA(TM) EXCEPT for JAVA(TM) 6 Update 22.

Now do a full PSI rescan & all should be in order.

Windows does not require JAVA to be installed to work therefore if U make a error & uninstall the lot it does not matter.

U can download the latest version from here if U really require JAVA.

http://www.java.com/en/download/ie_manual.jsp?loca...

Original 00:05 21/10/2010

Once U have completed both do a FUL PSI rescan. Has that fixed it?

Joe,
Take a look at this thread:
http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/600...

It is interesting it that Bill had the 10b problem. There are numerous ideas there.

Therefore before trying other solutions from that thread I would suggest U double check U have COMPLETELY SHUT down all the programmes I have listed before the manual deletion.

Joe,
If it continues to give U grief U could try this:

Navigate to C:\Windows\system32\Macromedia\Flash\Flash10b.ocx & rename it

C:\Windows\system32\Macromedia\Flash\Flash10b.ocx[ b]_OLD[/b]


Now do a full rescan - has that got rid of the pest?

Joe,
Sorry - I am a bit lost.

Has the problem gone with Flash?

Are U now saying a (Sun) JAVA problem has returned?

Joe,

After a full PSI scan have U got a 100% secure score?

If that IS the case could U please lock (ACCEPT) the thread which will prevent U & I getting update emails from "tag on" posts.

If your score is NOT 100% what problems remain?

By replying to relevant threads, will hopefully keep them on the first page, and relegate this overload of spam to the second page.
Apologies for unnecessary e-mail update.
