I am told this is an insecure program. I try to run the fix provided by Secunia but all I get is a Read me text. I can't even find the program in my program list?

If you have a answer please keep in mind I am not a techie!

Thanks.

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.

First, sorry - this was the first chance I had to check this out. It doe snot work. I can click on the folder without a red dot but I get this:The program has been detected in a special folder on your PC. This means that opening the folder where this program was found most likely won't show you the actual file.

You can, however, open a "Command Prompt" and go to the directory and see the files with "dir". Do this by:
1) Press "Start" then select "Run..."
2) Type: "cmd" and click "Ok"
3) In the new window type: "cd C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files"
4) Type: "dir"

If I follow those directions I get a message saying something like Cannot find path.

OK - Sorry I did not notice U were an XP user. What U should do is this:

Launch the command prompt from accessories in the programs list or go to Start>run> and type cmd in the box that appears.
type: cd c:\windows\downloaded program files
press enter
type: dir
press enter
find the files you wish to remove from the list that appears
type: del (now type the details of the file found above)
press enter
type: exit
press enter

That should work but if not U can try this:

ADOBE AKAMAI DOWNLOAD MANAGER(DLM)

This is the guide issued by Adobe to remove the DLM.
