I have locked your other thread to prevent confusion.

This is what you need to do to remove that file.

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:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\AOL\1298591702\ee\aim6.exe, version: 6.4.9.1

6. Right click on that file & select delete.

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

EDIT Have you now fixed this? After a full PSI scan it should be 100%. To respond just click the reply button at the bottom of this post - there is no requirement to create a new thread.

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.
