I installed PSI version 3 recently. It seems to be running okay for me. However, it shows that "Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) 4.x" is end of life and lists 6.x as the secure version. I have 6.x installed.

How do I uninstall version 4.30.2117.0?

Take a look in Control Panel>Program and Feature - what entries do you see for MSXML 4 there?

Nothing shows up in Control Panel under Programs. PSI shows 3.x, 6.x, and (as noted by my post) 4.x. The dll's are all there in the Windows\System32 directory--so I would say PSI is correct in reporting them.

I've considered simply deleting the older dll's, but I thought I would look to see if anyone with a more informed understanding had different advice.

Looks like a leftover file that PSI has found which you can rename by adding an extension like .OLD which is reversible or delete it. Whichever method is employed the offending file(s) will be crippled and should not show after a PSI rescan.
