I have updated Winamp to the latest version (5.541) but Secunia is still reporting it as a vulnerability. Could there be some old files left over that confuse the security check? The same goes for Java which I have also updated but still appears in the list, and FileZilla.

Hi all here's a possible solution to your problem(s).
I believe you still have remnants of an old version somewhere on your PC.

This should help you find it.

To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, please follow there guidelines using the
ADVANCED interface:
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
* Click on the + sign of the program to “expand’ it.
* Click on Technical Details in the Toolbox to see the installation path of the detected file.
* Remember the installation path and close down the menu.
* Click Open Folder and locate the detected file.
You can then delete the unneeded file(s)-reboot-scan & all should be good.
Regards,
wr
