Vista SP2, Windows Mail for mail client. Uninstalled Thunderbird with Revo Uninstaller Advanced mode, restarted computer, did PSI 2 scan, showed Thunderbird as needing patch, why? when it's been uninstalled.

Hi harolde;

Here's a shot in the dark. Is the folder location that PSI shows for Thunderbird a backup or archive?

If not where is it?

Can Revo uninstall it from that folder?


Regards;

Fred

Hello.
As Fred says, you may have another file/instance of the prog other than that which you've deleted. Secunia will continue to detect an older file/version even if it is still in the Recycle bin. To find the instance psi is detecting :-

Finding the file path.

psi versions 1.5.0.1 and 1.5.0.2

Use the Advanced interface...or switch to it ( Simple/ Advanced..top right of psi panel ).

1/. Click on the + sign alongside the programme to expand it.
2/. Click again on Tech Details in the Toolbox to confirm the installation path of the detected file/prog. 3/.Post the Installation Path back to the forum if you are uncertain how best to proceed.

psi version 2.0

Go to Results from the Dashboard


1/. Click on the + sign alongside the file.
2/. This will reveal the file path.
3/. Post the info back to the forum if uncertain how best to proceed.

Hope this helps....regards,
