I'm using PSI 2.0.0.403 in Vista x64. This problem is about a month old. According to the Adobe Shockwave Player website, I have the latest version of the player - 11.6.8.638. PSI says that Shockwave 10 is end-of-life. I don't have that on my computer. I've done update installation, uninstall and reinstall, and rescanned after each. I followed the path given in PSI and found that the complete path given doesn't exist. I've downloaded the solution given by PSI and it won't run at all. The troubleshooting report follows. The path given can't be followed after 'Macromed'.

Try a reboot & then full PSI rescan. If that fails try this again.

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\SysWOW64\Macromed\Shockwave 10\SwInit.exe, version: 10.4.1.40

6. Right click on that file & select delete.

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

I've already done all that, several times over. And as I also mentioned, there is no Shockwave 10 in the Macromed folder. I've followed the path listed, and I've used Everything to search my computer, and it's not there. I have my computer set to show hidden files and folders. I've looked inside the Shockwave 11 folder just in case - nada. I also installed the latest version of PSI and tried that, and got the same result. I then went back to the PSI version I have now.
This is an edit - just to be final, I just ran a complete PSI scan and the scan came up as ok. I have no idea why it would change after doing the same thing over a period of a few weeks, but it has. I've done complete scans before and after reboot, I've done that specific program rescan before and after reboot. At any rate, all appears to be well.
