For some months now PSI has been showing this message. The version detected is 5.0.44.0 (Active X) and the Threat Rating is the highest. The Installation Path is shown as: "D:\I386\APPS\APP18545\src\SWFLASH.OCX". I have tried every solution suggested to no avail. The Download Solution only gives me the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. When I attempt to open the folder to delete this program manually, I get this message: "The folder 'D:\i386\apps\app18545\src' does not exist". I also tried the link suggested by ddmarshall in a previous thread: "http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates...". After following the instructions and the program seemed to be uninstalling, a PSI re-scan still showed the program as end-of-life. How do I find this program so I can delete it? I also have the same warning for Macromedia Flash Player 7.x (7.0.19.0 (ActiveX)). Any help would be appreciated.

This is a backup location. You can tell Secunia to ignore it.
