I have tried several times to download the Apple Safari 4.x program to fix the security threat related to it. I have tried both using the link from Secunia and uninstalling the program completely. After uninstalling I have gone directly to the Apple website for the download and tried re-installing it. It worked to the degree that I can use it, but I still get the Secunia message that there is a security threat which concerns me. And yes, I did rescan the PC after the reinstall.

I began using Safari, because I cannot access my Gmail account using the Windows Explorer browser for some reason. If not for that, I think I would just uninstall Safari and forget it.

I hope you can help me with this problem.


PS I forgot to mention that my computer is a Dell Inspiron 530S with Vista OS.

The PSI always reports which file it's detected. If you enter advanced mode, by clicking "advanced" from the top right corner, you can then - from the insecure tab - by clicking + expand the program entry and determine the file path. Please post the file path here, as some programs some times place copies of certain files in interesting locations.

Placing detectable files in weird locations sometimes causes the PSI to report a bit overzealously.

Is there more than one entry for Safari? If, after enabling the advanced interface, you see an entry for Safari both in the Insecure and Patched tabs, more than one versions could be installed, or critical files could have been forgotten by an earlier installation.
Hope This Helps.
