U can use either of these solutions.

Click here for details of various methods from Microsoft:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2639197/

OR just do this:

DELETING A FILE OR FOLDER USING PSI VERSION 2

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 file.
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\PowerPoint Viewer\PPTVIEW.EXE, version: 11.0.8305.0

6. Right click on each one & select delete.

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


Update 12 08:48 14/04/2012

U must Reboot & do a full PSI scan for a result whichever method U choose

The Forum has not been working too well over the last couple of days but I note the relevancy score has changed.

Sadly, genuine submissions created on this Forum are getting "lost" amongst the sustained spammer attack posts being created.

I have grouped this post & others where Forum members have open questions & comments which should make it easier for Forum readers & helpers to navigate.

After 9 days there has been no response from the originator despite reminders & the fact he/she has been active eslewhere on the Forum. Looks like a time waster or spammer.
