    Well, I've worked through all the steps (surprisingly, the internet security settings were already as you suggested they should be) and updated/patched the programs which Secunia PSI found to be wanting. The only program which repeatedly comes up in the scan is ... you guessed it ... Firefox!

    I guess I can live with that, so thanks for all your help over the past few days.

    What does it say about that?

    Secunia PSI (in Simple Mode) is reporting that Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x is an Insecure Program (security threat), Category 5.

    I have downloaded/applied the suggested Solution twice but the warning remains.

    Have a try in advanced mode and see if it shows where the bad item is. Seems that someone else has a similar issue.

    In Advanced Mode, on the Insecure tab, PSI gives the installation path as C:\Windows\ERDNT\cache\firefox.exe and detects the version as 3.6.11

    When I start Firefox and look at the About Firefox information it shows that I am using version 3.6.12

    Success! Firefox is no longer showing as insecure.

    However, on the Secure Browsing tab there are two instances of Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.x marked as not secure for browsing with at least 4 critical attack vectors, and one instance of Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x with at least one critical attack vector.

    The IE 8.x instances both report the same vulnerabilities:

    Adobe Flash Player 10.x
    (C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\Flash10k.ocx)

    Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.x
    (C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe)

    Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.x
    (C:\Windows\ERDNT\cache\iexplore.exe)

    SupportSoft ActiveX Controls 6.x
    (C:\Program Files\Common Files\SupportSoft\bin\ssctlsma.dll)


    The Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x instance reports the following vulnerability:

    Adobe Flash Player 10.x
    (C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\NPSWF32.dll)

    Hi,

    Those remaining ones are likely issues that haven't got a patch available yet. Secunia program shows such things too.

    In that case, once again please accept my grateful thanks for helping to clear and clean my computer. I'll have no hesitation in using this site again (although I hope I shan't have to!) or in recommending it to anybody else having problems!

    I wish you well.
