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:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\NPSWF32.dll, version: 10.3.183.5 (NPAPI)

6. Right click on it & select delete.

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

Have U fixed this now like the other thread?

U must be running in Administrator Account for it to work.

I permanently run in administrator mode so have overlooked that detail - I will amend my advice in future.

Sorry - I did not pick up the fact that U have not got the latest version of Flash installed.

Download the latest Non IE version of Flash from here AND SAVE IT to desktop.

http://www.filehippo.com/download_flashplayer_fire...


NOW COMPLETELY EXIT (USE TASK MANAGER IF NECESSARY) ALL BROWSERS.

Once done, activate the installer from the desktop. Provided all the browsers are closed (not running) that action should uninstall all old versions before installing the latest one.

Once done run a FULL PSI scan - has that cleared it?

Good news. Sorry - I was a bit slow there in picking up that U had the wrong version installed anyway.

Looks like your problem has been resolved. I will lock this thread for U in a few hours time unless U post back asking for it to be left open.

This will protect your mail box from update emails from Forum "tag on" posts & spammers.

You can of course lock your own threads yourself. Just click the ACCEPT button in the post of the helper who offered U the best solution/advice to solve your problem.
