3 of these solutions belong to PowerSearch Silverlight, while 3 belong to the later version of PowerSearch. 

The solutions that belong to the new version of PowerSearch are very easy to recognize, because the word Plugin is always part of the solution.

Step 3: Delete the PowerSearch (Silverlight) solutions

To do so, simply check one of the solutions, then click on the [Delete]-button.
