I am using ms office home & student 2007. At one time I did have the Professional Office 97 installed, but have since uninstalled. It seems Access 97.x apparently was not removed when I uninstalled Office 97 and keeps popping up as insecure, end of life in my Secunia scans as C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\MSACCESS.EXE, version 8.0.0.4122---can I just go to drive C and delete this address or should this be handled some other way?

I assume it is not in Control Panel>add/remove?

If not U can do this:

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 files or folders.
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\MSACCESS.EXE, version 8.0.0.4122

6. Right click on it & select delete.

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

OR
Insert your original Office 97 disk & remove any remnants.

Thanks for your assistance. Right, it was not showing up in Add/Remove Programs. I followed your instructions and it is now deleted. I ran a scan and it no longer shows up in the scan results. Scanned system at 100% now that this file is gone. Thanks again.

Please to see U are all fixed up.

I will lock this thread for U in a few hours time unless U post back asking for it to be left open.
