I have Secunia PSI tray version 2.0.0.3003 installed on an Acer Laptop, running Windows Vista. When the full Secunia scan indicated that I had Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer 2003 as an end-of-life programme, I installed the relevant update (to 2007). When I looked in my list of programmes both versions of the Powerpoint Viewer (i.e. 2003 + 2007) were listed, so I uninstalled the 2003 version. This version doesn't now show in my programme list or in the Uninstall list of programmes in Control Panel. Despite several reboots + scans, PSI still shows this programme as a threat.

Any thoughts anyone? Joanna

Hello.
If you go to the Scan Results page of psi, and then click on the +sign, left of the offending program/file, it will open up to reveal the file path to same.Clicking on the nearest folder icon left, will open the folder....where you will be able to delete.
In future you may find it easier when reporting a problem....click on the +sign and then double click the entry....another panel will appear with a Toolbox top right....click on Troubleshoot report...copy/paste and send to the forum.

Hope this helps.......regards,

Glad you're all sorted. In case you havn't already got it bookmarked...here's the link to the FAQ's which you may find handy from time to time :-
http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal...
Don't forget you've also got access to the psi Manual (PDF)....see Learn More; left on the main Dashboard of psi.
You can also keep track of the latest versions....formal announcements concerning minor releases don't always accompany....:-
http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal... fact the 3003 version doesn't yet appear here !!
Try not to get involved with the Vulnerabilities section of the forum....basically it is reserved for specific Advisory discussion.....and trespassers have often been penalized for doing so........you can post anywhere else you feel suits.

If the issue is now resolved ; as you are the originator of the thread, you have the option to close it, by selecting ACCEPT. This will lock the thread : preventing tag-on posts and reminder e mails.........good luck and regards,
