You helped me get rid of the old Macormedia program on my WinXP but I can't seem to delete it on my laptop Win 7. I go to Toolbox >Open Folder and right click on the one I want but when I click delete it says the folder is open in Secunia. I have closed everything but it won't let me delete it. Help please?

Hi claw;

First, have you tried Add/Remove yet?

After using Open Folder to get to the folder, have you remembered to stop PSI? Clicking the X in the top right corner is not enough. Right click on the Secunia icon in the tray and click Exit, then Yes.

If still having a problem, please post back.

Fred's advice, above, re. fully exiting PSI from tray icon, should be sufficient to enable you to make your desired deletion.

As a double check, though (if needed), you can look in Task Mgr.>Processes for psi.exe.
If this is still present after fully exiting PSI, then you can End Process for this.


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