PSI remarks that there is no secure browsing with Internet explorer 7 although I am working with IE8. Why?

Does it also detect IE8? I don't think IE7 automatically goes away.

What is the path PSI is pointing to?

To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, use or switch to the ADVANCED interface, then :

1 Click on the + sign of the programme to “expand’ it.
2 Click on Technical Details in the Toolbox to see the installation path of the detected file. (Copy (CTRL+C) & paste (CTRL+V) the Installation Path of the file back to the Forum if U are unsure what to do next).



Hello Maurice,

thank you for your reply.

IE7 is not marked as an unsecure program. The Secunia System Score is 100% but under the tab "secure browsing" the IE7 is mentioned. One path here is e. g.
c:\SWWORK\SRV5\KB939653\amd64_microsoft-windows-ie -internetexplorer_31bf3856ad364e35_....\iexplore.e xe

I thought I deinstalled IE7 in favor of IE8.

Best regards, whatsup

Looks like c:\SWWORK Folder is an install Folder for pre-installed applications on your system.

What is the make and model of the system?

Its probably safe to remove the Folder.

That's what I thought.

Read about T61 pre-installed junk:

My XP Pro IBM ThinkCenter came pre-installed with Norton 360 that I promptly removed as it made the system slower than a XP Home system it was replacing.

Remove the offending file detected by PSI.

Thank you very much for the hint - I will try it.
Norton has been removed in the beginning already
but I was not aware of all the extra Windows files.
Stay tuned.
