After I did a Secunia scan, one threat appears called Adobe Reader 6.x. I tried the solution given but I got an error that says "Set up has detected that you already have a more functional product installed. Set up is not terminated."
I have already upgraded to Adobe Reader 9.
I restarted my PC and tried another Secunia scan but the same threat message appears. Any thoughts?
I have windows xp and IE.

Thank you for your help. Once I got into the Advanced User area, I figured it out.

I don't need all the functions of Adobe Reader so I use Foxit Reader 3.1.1.0901
