From somewhere I must have picked up an old version of Shockwave Player 10. My scan is showing this as end of life, but I have the newest version.

Location:
C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Shockwave 10\SwInit.exe, version 10.4.1.38

How do I get rid of this?

DELETING A FILE OR FOLDER

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:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Shockwave 10\SwInit.exe, version 10.4.1.38

6. Right click on that file & select delete.

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

VERSION 3

Open PSI>once open select Show Programs.

U will now see a page full of programme icons or a list.

Right click on the icon that represents the programme in error>select Show Details - that will open a box showing the path & version number of the offending file.

Double click on C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Shockwave 10\SwInit.exe, version 10.4.1.38

That will open Windows Explorer & U will see that file. Right click on it & select delete.

Run a full PSI scan & the problem should be resolved.

Thank you much! All is well again. I found your fix in another post yesterday for the MSXML problem and it worked like a charm. You're the greatest!
