The web page writer misspelled recognize...they wrote recognise.
I was a spelling b champ in elementary school...and seeing a spelling error on a web page leads me to not hold much faith in what is offered on the web page.
I ran the following URL which helped me determine if software was up to date on my system.
I was running Adobe Reader 7.07 and was advised to update to 8 which I did. Question? Now in Add and Remove both Adobe Readers (7.07 & are showing as installed. Should I uninstall the earlier version?
A further question- In Services I have the following running which I wonder if they are all needed -
1)Symantec Event Manager
2)Symantec Settings Manager
3)Symantec Core LC
4)True Vector Internet Monitor.
The only Symantec software I run is Nortons Ghost 10 which is my backup image software for my entire system, so wondering if all these items need to be in services running at startup?
Lastly I am running Adobe Flash Player 188.8.131.52 which I believe is the latest released, (showing installed in Add and Remove) but Secunia.com persistenly tells me my Macromedia needs upgrading:
"This installation of Macromedia Flash Player 8.x is insecure and potentially exposes your system to security threats!
The detected version installed on your system is 184.108.40.206, however, the latest secure version released by the vendor, fixing one or more vulnerabilities, is 220.127.116.11.
Update to version 18.104.22.168.
NOTE: When updating Flash Player, older versions are not always automatically removed from your system. If older versions were detected that you believe should not be present, then please contact the vendor regarding how to remove them from your system.
Read about the vulnerabilities fixed with this update in Secunia advisory SA22467 (opens in a new window). The Secunia advisory describes the vulnerabilities fixed by the latest security update. If your installation is outdated with more than one version, then more vulnerabilities may be covered.
