I uninstalled that Adobe Air awhile back and now Secunia says it is insecure. The path is:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe AIR\Versions\1.0\Adobe AIR.dll

If U have removed the programme it is a remnant. Just right click & delete it.

Also see my post reference Adobe Reader - that has an Air element.

I have uninstalled Adobe Reader and the Adobe Download Manager. I had previously removed Adobe.com, Adobe AIR and Adobe Acrobat.

My concern about just deleting this Adobe AIR.dll file is that it is a dll file. I just wanted to make sure you noticed that it is a dll file, and if you still tell me that it is safe to remove I will remove it.

Thanks!

If U are ever concerned about files like this just rename them _OLD like the others U did.

Once U see things are working OK U can then go back & delete them.

Thank you so much for this tip. I didn't realize you could use this method generally.
