Follow this script & it will fix it.

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\SysWOW64\Adobe\Shockwave 11\SwInit.exe, version: 11.6.3.633

6. Right click on it & select delete.

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