Hi,

I received this message when scanning today.

C:\Users\ACER-PC\AppData\Local\Temp\._msigeplugin5 2\program files\Google\Google Earth\plugin\geplugin.exe, version 5.2.1.1588

When trying to install solution, it takes me to the Chrome webside.. Trying to install that, unly gives me an error: Cant install because it wont allow administrative rights!

Google Earth ver 6.xx (which I already had installed) has been deleted, that didn't help. Re-scan, didn't help!

ANy ideas?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Best Regards,

John

DELETING A FILE OR FOLDER USING PSI VERSION 2

To delete a vulnerable file or folder 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 file or folder.
C:\Users\ACER-PC\AppData\Local\Temp\._msigeplug in5 2\program files\Google\Google Earth\plugin\geplugin.exe, version 5.2.1.1588

6. Right click on it & select delete.

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