Hello

I have been experiencing a problem with Python 2.7 for a while now, I have installed the latest version and done a full system scan. The problem seems to still exist though. I have had a problem like this before but the friendly people on the forum helped and sorted it out.

The following is the trouble shooting report from PSI:

---START---

Program Name:
Python 2.7.x

Security State:
Insecure

Download Link:

Last System Scan (localtime):

Operating System:

Any help to sort this error out would be much appreciated!

I take it that you have version 2.7.3 installed?

If that is the case do 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 files.
C:\Users\Jack\Desktop\MCEdit-0.1.0-10-gbcf7.win 32\ MCEdit-0.1.0-10-gbcf7.win32\python27.dll, version: 2.7.2150.1013
C:\Users\Jack\Desktop\MCEdit-0.1.0-10-gbcf7.win32\ python27.dll, version: 2.7.2150.1013
C:\Users\Jack\Desktop\MCEdit-0.1.0-10-gbcf7.win32\ appdata\MCEdit-0.1.1.win32\python27.dll, version: 2.7.2150.1013


6. Right click on those files & 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 files.

Double click on C:\Users\Jack\Desktop\MCEdit-0.1.0-10-gbcf7.win 32\ MCEdit-0.1.0-10-gbcf7.win32\python27.dll, version: 2.7.2150.1013
C:\Users\Jack\Desktop\MCEdit-0.1.0-10-gbcf7.win32\ python27.dll, version: 2.7.2150.1013
C:\Users\Jack\Desktop\MCEdit-0.1.0-10-gbcf7.win32\ appdata\MCEdit-0.1.1.win32\python27.dll, version: 2.7.2150.1013


That will open Windows Explorer & U will see those files. Right click on them & select delete.

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

Pleased to see you are all fixed up.

On that basis, I will lock this thread for U sometime tomorrow unless U post back asking for it to be left open.
