I am using XP SP3, last updated earlier this month; Windows Explorer is set to show hidden and read-only files.

Neither Windows Explorer nor Windows Search can find folder WebEx nor file atas32.dll. Based on other PSI problem reports i see that this problem has been around a long time; what is it that triggers PSI? The WebEx website is of no assistance in providing updates. Is some code in ROM possibly being sensed? Or deleted files? I deleted a file in Downloaded Program Files for which Properties indicated it performed WebEx Control functdions, but rerunning PSI still identified the same system insecurity.

Would it be wreckless for me to delete all files in C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files ?

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\Downloaded Program Files\WebEx\500\atas32.dll, version: 2.6.21.4

6. Right click on it & select delete.

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