7-zip version is End-of-Life but it is part of Paragon Partition Manager. How can I remove this old version? I do not want to buy a new version of Partition Manager because I use the program very seldom.
Do I have to uninstall the program to get to a green Secunia icon?

There are three ways of making Flexera PSI give a green light from an EOL programme is:

1. Add an extension to the EXE file by renaming it to something like .OLD - this will cripple the programme but is reversible.

2. Uninstalling the offending programme.

3. Creating an ignore rule and take a risk.
