Why an "End-of-Life" problem found by PSI reapears in a new search even after the "Install Solution" have been performed?

I assume U are using PSI version 2? If this is the case what path does PSI give U?


FINDING A FILE PATH

From the DASHBOARD page click on SCAN RESULTS.

1. This will list all your programmes with a + to the left of each programme.
2. Click the + sign next to the item that U want help with.
3. This will reveal the path under DETECTED INSTANCES.
4. Below DETECTED INSTANCES you will see this You can double click this row for additional information & options>double click it>a box will appear>look to the RIGHT & U will see TROUBLESHOOT REPORT in BLUE writing under the heading TOOLBOX> click TroubleShoot Report & it will reveal some information in a box>highlight the information revealed from ---START--- to ---END--- & copy it (CTRL+C) then post it to the Forum (CTRL+V)

As an EXAMPLE the end result U post to the Forum should look something like this:
---START---

Sorry - I missed your reply.


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:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\SWFLASH.OCX, version: 5.0.44.0 (ActiveX)

6. Right click on it & select delete.Then do exactly the same to this entry
C:\Windows\System32\FLASH.OCX, version: 7.0.19.0 (ActiveX)

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