Every time there is an update to Reader, PSI tells me that it requires a manual update. First question is why? Second question is when I open PSI it shows Reader as "updating". today it showed Adobe X 10.x. I went to the Adobe website, downloaded Reader 11.X and it installed fine. Why?

I have similar problem . Secunia shows me as having both Adobe Reader x10 and x11. It reqiires x10 to be updated but will not allow an update as x10 is not there. How do I remove x10? I cant do it through Secunia and it does not appear on Windows update remove list.
This is not serious but I like to keep my Secunia score down below 99%.

What path is PSI showing to the file that is vulnerable in Reader V 10 after a full rescan?



From the DASHBOARD page click on SCAN RESULTS.

1. This will list all your programmes with a + to the left of each programme.
2. Click the + sign next to the item that U want help with.
3. This will reveal the path under DETECTED INSTANCES.
4. Below DETECTED INSTANCES you will see this You can double click this row for additional information & options>double click it>a box will appear>look to the RIGHT & U will see TROUBLESHOOT REPORT in BLUE writing under the heading TOOLBOX> click TroubleShoot Report & it will reveal some information in a box>highlight the information revealed from ---START--- to ---END--- & copy it (CTRL+C) then post it to the Forum (CTRL+V)

This version does not have such an easy method to publish the path.

Open PSI>once open select Show Programs.
U will now see a page full of programme icons or a list.
Right click on the programme in error>select Show Details - that will open a box showing the path & version number of the offending file.
U now have 2 options:
1. Write down the exact file path & install version - return to the Forum & type that information.
2. Take a screen shot & publish that.
