Secunia recognises Firefox 5.x in C:\Windows\ERDNT\cache. I have Firefox 16.0.2 installed.

Do I need to manually delete the older Firefox 5.x? What kind of cache is it?

It belongs to a backup programme called ERUNT - do you use that programme?

I think I have used ERUNT once in the past but completely forgot about it. I also thought that is only backs up the registry and nothing else.

Does the firefox.exe in its cache pose a security risk? Please let me know if I have to do anything about it. Thank you.

Navigate back to that file then right click & select delete.

A full rescan should show all is in order.
