Secunia says it is a threat and I have downloaded many times but still shows as threat? I have netscape 9 installed . How do I get rid of Secunia aways coming up with 7 being a threat?

Hi Jon

PSI is reporting v.7 because it's still on your computer. I don't personally use Netscape, but as is the case with some other updates, the new version doesn't always overwrite or uninstall the old one, and often creates a new file, leaving all or part of the old one.

Using the Advanced mode, if Netscape7 is showing under Insecure tab, click on the [+] on its left. Here are the Toolbox icons. If you click on the "Open Folder", this will take you to the location of the insecure file, which can then be deleted.

It will probably be necessary to re-boot and re-scan PSI, afterwards.


Computing is not yet a perfect science - it still requires humans.
