Program Name:
ImageMagick 6.x

Security State:
Insecure

Download Link:
http://dl.secunia.com/SPS/ImageMagick_6.7.6-1.exe

Instances Found:
C:\Program Files\ALL OTHERS\ImageMagick-6.6.9-8\convert.exe, version: 6.6.9

Last System Scan (localtime):

Operating System:
Microsoft Windows 7, Microsoft Windows 7

The program provided at "install solution" wants to install at a new location than the previous version (the folder IM creates and saves in includes the version number, so different from the last). This installer also warns "uninstall the existing ImageMagick (see uninstall procedure) prior to installing the newer version."

I can not find an install.exe nor uninstall.exe in the last IM folder. The program is not listed in "Add/Remove Programs". Except for Adobe Flash which I always uninstall first, I am accustomed to simply using the "check for updates" found in most programs which clean up their own previous version leftovers. If I simply delete the old folder, what else is being left behind that also may need manual deletion, and will the new install choke on any leftover registry bits?

It seems I have found the original download I installed with - I used the .zip version which says "Just copy to your host and run (no installer, no Windows registry entries)." If I understand/assume correctly then, if I use the new .zip again from IM website instead of the .exe that Secunia links to, I should be good just to delete the entire older folder and old zip ? And then run with the new .zip ?

Have U seen this thread?

U will note there is a detection problem with this programme. Not sure whether an answer has been received from the vendor.

Yes, I saw that, however it's not relevant in my case. The version I have pasted in my query is indeed older/insecure.
Thanks anyway.
