Secunia says my version is insecure. I do not have it my add/remove program. If I try to delete the folder, it says it is being used by another application and I cannot delete it.

Any suggestions?

When a program does not show up in Add/Remove Programs, and it does not seem possible to uninstall it, you can contact the vendor of the program for information on how to uninstall their product.

Windows Netmeeting is a superfluous feature packaged with microsoft windows that cannot be removed.

As far as it being unsafe...
You can try to go to the microsoft update website to update it.

The PSI interface shows a "Solution from Secunia advisory (English) (SA11064)" which includes links to various Microsoft patches. I tried the one appropriate to my version of Windows (XP), but when I tried to install it I got the message "Setup has detected that the Service Pack version of the system is newer than the update you are applying. There is no need to install this update".

I have XP SP3 installed, so presumably Microsoft consider that the vulnerability in NetMeeting is addressed in SP3. If that's true, that implies that this threat detection by the PSI is a false positive. Even if it's not true, perhaps the Secunia Advisory should be updated to list this patch only for earlier versions of XP. Then the question would be - is there another patch which should be applied to XP SP3?

Netmeeting can be removed from XP. Details are here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/938223
There is also an email help link at the bottom of the hyperlink page to Microsoft.

Reinstallation details are here:
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/netmeet.htm

What is the path to the insecurity found by Secunia. The correct path of Netmeeting is C:\Program Files\Netmeeting\conf.exe (Version 3.1)
Is your path different to this?

Thank you, that was just the information I needed. I checked the path of NetMeeting and found it was indeed C:\Program Files\Netmeeting\conf.exe, which made me realise my mistake: that path was in another partition in which I have Windows 98 installed, so the PSI was not after all reporting a vulnerability in Windows XP SP3.

The Microsoft article says it is applicable to XP and to NetMeeting 1.0, but in fact the fix recommended there has now successfully removed NetMeeting 3 from Windows 98 as well, clearing up the vulnerability report from the PSI.
