Hi All -- I ran an online Secunia scan and it brought up a few applications that were outdated. I took care of all but one file, which is located here:
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\Macromed\Flash\Flash11f.ocx. I went to flash and downloaded the latest version and thought I was done. Just to be sure, I ran Secunia again. Again it told me that this file was still on the computer and still a risk. I manually checked and yes, the file is still there.
When I right click that file and select delete, it asks me to confirm that I want to delete this 'read only' file. I say yes, then it tells me 'access denied', and something about making sure the file is not full or write protected, or in use. I closed down Firefox, thinking that was the problem, but it still won't delete. This is apparently an older active x plug-in and it's a security risk.
I right clicked again to look at properties, and I see no reason why I should not be able to delete it. I am assigned 'full control' (my user name is) in that box.
Thanks for any suggestions.
