The installed file located here: C:\Program Files (x86)\MyInk\onenote.exe is not Microsoft OneNote 2003 but an application associated with Adesso Cybertablet M14 called My Ink.

Coincidentally, I've never had anything under Office 2010 installed on this specific computer.

Hi

Could I ask you to make a software suggestion on the detected file?

Simply use the "Program missing, sugest it here" link in the PSI .

If possible, try to find a product page from the vendor.

I will then correct our rules

Hi

I found the software on the vendors website:
http://www.adesso.com/en/support/software-download...

It seems that MyInk uses some Microsoft OneNote components and also have some Plug-ins to integrate into Microsoft Office.

The PSI correctly pick's up the insecure OneNote component.

It looks to me that MyInk is a rather old piece of software (2006), and the vendor might no longer support it.

I would recommend that you contact the vendor and ask them if they could provide with a patch since they include old and insecure components in their software.
