I've just run Secunia PSI for the first time and several of the programmes I have uninstalled ar showing up on the list. They're not in the add/remove programmes list for me to remove.

The programmes are:
Adobe Reader
ClamWin Fre antivirus
Firefox 2 (I have 3 installed)
OpenOffice 2 (I have 3 installed)

Any ideas for what I should do?

Thanks

Have you tried to re-scan after uninstalling the programs?

The progs were uninstalled before I ran secunia. I guess they just weren't removed completely somehow.

Try looking at the paths to where the PSI found the programs, it may help you understand why they are still on your system

Ah ha! Thanks for that. They were files in a backup from an old system.

Solved. Thanks again.
