PSI correctly identified my EOL Shockwave Player 10.x The solution, however, simply involved installing SWP 11.x, which did not uninstall its predecessor. Version 10 does not appear in "Programs & Features" in my Win 7 (x64) Control Panel, and no uninstall program appears in the Shockwave 10 folder. I have run some other uninstaller programs and the remnants of SWP10 are not found.

Is it safe to simply delete what's left of the old folder (which PSI persistently and correctly finds), then run my registry cleaner to remove obsolete entries? If not, I am open to other suggestions. Thanks.

U clearly know where the file is that Secunia has found. Just right click & delete it.

Run a full PSI scan & all will be in order.

Thanks Maurice. I was hoping that would be the solution. :-)
