Scanner says i have version 5.18.8.0 installed and there is an update to version 5.19.2.1 but I actually have version 6.04 build 2 installed (which is the latest via the internal updater build into IDM.
Please help and get rid of this invalid "insecure application" listing.

I would suggest the new version to Secunia.

SUGGESTING A NEW PROGRAMME TO SECUNIA

ALL PSI VERSIONS EXCEPT V2

1. Open the PATCHED or SECURE BROWSING tab.
2. Scroll to the bottom where U will see a link in blue ink "Program Missing? Suggest It Here!"
3. Click the link & then fill out the details in the boxes that appear(the important bit is the FILE SELECTION).
4.Click Suggest Program.

Normally,Secunia do not respond to any request for programme inclusion nor do they accept programmes in Beta.

After a reasonable time lapse a full rescan of PSI should reveal the new programme.

VERSION 2

1. From the DASHBOARD page click on RESULTS.
2. On the RESULTS page look above the tab INSTALL SOLUTION & U will see a green icon & ARE YOU MISSING A PROGRAM?
3. Click it. Fill out the details requested.
4. Click SUGGEST SOFTWARE.

Hi,

This product should has been added to our database, and should be detected if you run a full scan.

However, I noticed that IDM 6.x doesn't remove files from 5.x before installing, so if you want to avoid unnecessary clutter, I would recommend uninstalling version 5.x before installing 6.x

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info and the timely replies.
I have decided to remove the application all together as I realised I had it disabled for months now and wasn't using it anymore.
