I use PSI2 and have been given a warning that Adobe Air needs to be updated - but it is up-to-date according to both you and Adobe. So why is PSI saying it needs to be updated?

Does the vulnerability which is triggering PSI is issue the warning show after a reboot and full PSI rescan?

If it does continue to show after that action PSI has almost certainly found an old file from a previous AIR version.

To find and remove it (if necessary)the actions are:

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 & you will be able to see the vulnerable file.

6. Right click on that file & select delete.

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