PSI Scan indicated that Google Earth 5.x is end-of-life. Uninstalled the program and re-installed version 6. Than ran PSI Scan again and it still says that Earth 5.x is end-of-life. Can someone tell me why?

Mark,

DELETING A FILE OR FOLDER USING PSI VERSION 2

To delete vulnerable files or folders found by PSI try this:

1. Open PSI>Scan results.

2. Against the programme marked as vulnerable is a + sign to the left of it.

3. Click that & it will reveal DETECTED INSTANCES.

4. Below that are two yellow folders. Click the one WITHOUT a red dot.

5. That will open Windows Explorer & U will be able to see the vulnerable files or folders.

C:\Windows\Temp\._msige52\program files\Google\Google Earth\plugin\geplugin.exe, version: 5.2.1.1588

C:\Users\Mark\AppData\Local\Temp\._msige52\program files\Google\Google Earth\client\googleearth.exe, version: 5.2.1.1588

C:\Users\Mark\AppData\Local\Temp\._msige52\program files\Google\Google Earth\plugin\geplugin.exe, version: 5.2.1.1588

C:\Windows\Temp\._msige52\program files\Google\Google Earth\client\googleearth.exe, version: 5.2.1.1588


6. Right click on each one & select delete.

7. Carry out a full PSI scan & all should be in order.

Thanks, it worked. But I had to allow access to system directories to see the map Program Files under Windows Temp. Could not acces these files directly from PSI.

Mark,
Pleased U are all fixed up. To see them U must alter a view option in Control Panel>Folder Options - show hidden files must be active.

I will lock this thread to prevent U from getting any more update emails from "tag on" posts & spammers.
