PSI showed Microsoft Power Point Viewer 2007 as end-of-life. In installed the 2007 version, and that is what is shown in my Add/Remove program list in Vista. However, PSI is still showing it as insecure. Path is:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\PowerPoint Viewer\PPTVIEW.EXE

Adobe Shockwave Player 10.x is shown as end-of-life. I have Adobe Shockwave Player 11.5 and that is what is shown in Add/Remove. I played an online game on Shockwave site today and I'm sure this 10.x version downloaded at that time. The path is:

C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Shockwave 10\SwOnce.dll

How do I get rid of these 2 end-of-life entries? I can't uninstall Adobe Shockwave player 10.x because it isn't shown in progam list.

I don't know what the deal is on Power Point Viewer since I now show that I have 2007.

Sorry - misread the shockwave bit.

Here is my standard reply to Shockwave issues. Use the bits that will help U solve your problem.

SHOCKWAVE


Before starting to fix Adobe Shockwave do U really require it? Windows works perfectly without this programme which may have been pre installed on the PC at the time of purchase.

If not required just uninstall it completely. If you do have a requirement read on:

1. Uninstall Shockwave for your OS from the clearly marked link here:
http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates...

2. Reboot to clear out any left over ocx files.

3. Rescan using PSI. Are there any outstanding files that are insecure? These should be cleared out before proceeding to serial 4.In your case this means all the files U have listed in the Shockwave folder

Note 1: At this stage,if PSI finds any elements of Shockwave in the C:\i386 folder or on any drive other than C that is an OEM reinstallation partition (normally D drive) or a drive U use solely to backup your work U can safely create an ignore rule.

Note 2: The path on the C Drive to any remaining insecurity is important. Does it point to the Shockwave Player or another Adobe product that has a Flash element? If it points to Shockwave right click on the file(s) & delete them. If it points elsewhere reinstalling Shockwave will not necessarily clear the problem.

4. Reinstall Shockwave from here:
http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/

5. If you wish to test your new Shockwave Player the link is here:
