Secunia flags this program as end of life so I downloaded the new one and it installed in a new folder now I have both and ADD/REMOVE Programs doesn't show v 8x , also tried CC cleaner it doesn't show there.
Path goes like this
C: Programs 86x\samsung printer network utilities\syncthru admin5\postgreslq\engine\bin is where v 8x resides

C: Program Files x86\Samsung Network Printer Utilities\SyncThru Admin5\postgreslq\engine\bin\bin is where v 9 resides

There are a LOT of files in v 8's bin folder so I just don' want to delete it leaving v 9's bin do I?

I tried a new version of Sync Thru but it used the same old PostgreSLQ v 8

I would be very tempted to remove the v8 bin folder completely.

Not sure it can do much harm. V9 must be standalone therefore if things go slightly "pearshaped" (unlikely) a reinstall of V9 should clear it all up.

thank you for your help - it took a little doing as the folder 'was in use' but I got it with a bit of shuffling.
The printer seems to be working... I haven't rebooted yet however; maybe I should do that
Much appreciated.

It seems to have worked Maurice... reboot, rescan with secunia and its not showing as an error any more. Printed a few pages so no problems.
Thanks for the help, I was chicken to delete it not knowing if it would mess something up
