I have downloaded the most recent versions of both adobe flash player and avast virus protection , yet secunia keeps showing them as insecure? Let me know what to do ! thanks! I have downloaed latest versions to patch and have rescanned my PC after applying the patch. not sure how to show you the path? not very computer savvy about paths, but I do know the version detected by secunia is not the version on my computer as I have checked with avast and adobe and the version they detect on my computer is the most recent one that i downloaded, but secunia doesnt recognize the newer version?

Hello jacquie ,

Here are some instructions to help you get the best out of PSI :-

1)use PSI in "advanced" mode ;
2)in the "settings" tab make sure that the box in the first/upper section is NOT ticked in order to have the maximum info available ;
3)tell us in which "tab(s)" your problem programme is located ;
4)in that tab , click on the + in the box at the left end of the programme , the page will expand ;
5)in the expanded page , tell us what is written in the "installation path" ;
6)in the "toolbox" section , lower down , the link "technical details" should confirm the installation path details ;
7)click on the link "open folder" and you will see more details concerning the location of the "problem" .

If you are unable to resolve the problem yourself , all this info should allow someone on the forum to help/advise you .

Here is a link to another thread in the Forum dealing with Avast :-

Follow Maurice Joyce's instructions in this thread for dealing with Adobe Flash Player :-

Let us know how you get on or if you need more help .

You can find threads already dealing with your problems using the "drop down" menus at the top of the thread pages.

Take care
