After running OSI, I downloaded the most recent Flash Player and then couldn't find the old one (to delete it) through the Control Panel. I have located it in the path listed in OSI, but can I now just drag it to the Recycle Bin--or is it more complicated than that? Obviously, I don't want to mess everything up. Thanks...

Hi Debbie,

If you haven't done so already, restart your computer and then run the scan again. If you still get the insecure message then click on the advance user interface tab on Secunui PSI. There will be a + sign next to the programs that are insecure. Click the + to enable the drop down menu. There will be a link for the Adobe removal tool. This will uninstall all versions of the active x control and you will have to reinstall the latest version which is 10., which you can get by clicking on the download solution button in Secunia PSI.

Hope this helps,

Richard

Rich or anyone,

I had used OSI, rather than PSI. Is there a way to fix it from within OSI, or another work-around? THanks...

Hi Debbie,

Here is the link for the uninstaller:
http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/cur...

And here is the link for the latest version:
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Use them in that order and then rescan your computer.

Richard

Hi, just a quickie to help you on your way, just got shot of an old Flash Player manually off my machine (the uninstaller wouldn't touch/see it), I normally put old apps in the recycle bin (dependant on size of course!) and leave them for a couple of weeks just in case. A problem on the horizon w,r,t, Flash Player is that OSI/PSI identifies hidden files which can make drag'n'drop impossible. To reveal and work with these files just change to "Show hidden" in Tools/Folder options/View. These files are normally hidden for a very good reason so revert back once your done. Of course, I could be reinventing the wheel in your case.

Creating a system restore point prior to doing this is a GOOD idea if you feel the need. "just in case".

Aaaah, but did it make sense, did you use the help and has it sorted your problem? This is for those that WILL follow. Hopefully that's three yes's. Anyway, I'm sure I speak for Richard when I say it was a pleasure. Mick.

Mick, I second that! :)

I was gonna quote your post after this one but I didn't want to add to the redundancy again like I did last night. :)
