1.SHOCKWAVE

I thought we discussed Shockwave here which tells U how to remove it:

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/118...

U elected to run with version 10 to keep some games alive. Until the vendor of those games updates the programme U need it. If not U can uninstall the games & dump version 10 as described in that thread.

2. JAVA

Go to Control Panel>add/remove.

Uninstall ALL versions of JRE or JSE or JDK or JVM or JAVA(TM)

Now do a full PSI rescan & all should be in order.

U can download the latest version from here if U really require JAVA.

http://www.java.com/en/download/ie_manual.jsp?loca...

U can test it is working correctly here:

http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp

3. WIN DVD GOLD & MICROSOFT FRONT PAGE

These are paid for programmes therefore the only way to update them is to pay for the upgrades.

The alternatives are:

a. Uninstall them.
b. Create an ignore rule having carried out a Risk Assessment against the Secunia Advisories on these products.

U have not given the version numbers of these products so cannot really advise further.

This should clear shockwave.

SHOCKWAVE

1. Uninstall Shockwave for your OS from the clearly marked link below:
http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates...

2. Reinstall Shockwave from here:
http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/

3. If you wish to test your new Shockwave Player the link is:

http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/

4. Complete a full PSI rescan. That should have cleared the problem? If not, please publish the troubleshoot report as outlined here:

http://secunia.com/products/consumer/PSI/faq/#q18

As my previous post suggested U must consider what U want to do with those old programmes - here are a few facts:

FRONTPAGE

The version U have is FRONTPAGE 2000 - All mainstream support ended for that in June 2004.

Extended support ended in July 2009. That means that Microsoft have not fixed any bugs,made any enhancements or fixed any security threats from that date & they will not do so in the future.

WINDVD GOLD 5

Same rules apply as above. The latest version appears to be 11 which makes your version very old.

Details here:

Hope this helps.

Please to see U have got it all sorted.

On that basis, 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 possible update emails from Forum "tag on" posts

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.
