I rescanned today and got a 100% score as recommended in the discussions regarding free type 2x problem. What I don't understand and don't see addressed is whether the download from the link was neccessary in the first place? Do these files I downloaded and unzipped need to remain on my computer? I saw mentioned this was just a PSI false positive.
Any input for this newbie would be appreciated !!
I am very confused about this issue.

No U do not need them & they can be safely dumped.

It was a false positive from Secunia if the file was embedded in another programme that U were using.

EDIT: To explain a bit more - they have adjusted their definitions & that is why it no longers shows as a problem for U.
