Hi Ruth, welcome to the Reckon Community. As Answerworks 5 Vantage is a third party program which helps run the help index it would be advisable to not uninstall it. If you wish to uninstall it you should be able to via your Control Panel (Add/Remove Programs). Thanks, Mirko

Hi Mirko,  Thank you.  I saw on a USA site - US products - that this program could allow infiltration and it was advising removing it. Which is why I asked the question here.  I take it that this problem has now been solved?  Regards Ruth.

Hey Ruth, there was a patch released by Intuit at the time. But it is no longer necessary so long as you have post 2011 Operating System, or have had Microsoft Windows updates since the vulnerability was discovered, as Microsoft provided a patch in that period. - Mirko
