For the last month or so I have had the Secunia PSI indicate on the Scan Results screen idicate that Microsoft Product Windows XP Professional is insecure and requires Microsoft Update to be performed. I have Windows XP Home Edition installed NOT WIndows XP Professional.

I'm fairly sure this is a known issue....and in fact has had an airing quite recently.....with the outcome that it does't interfere with updatedness. I'm very sure I'll be corrected by XP users on the forum if wrong. Meantime...have you followed the recommended procedure ? :-

When updating Microsoft Applications, it is a good idea to keep in mind that some Microsoft Updates do not "kick in" until after a reboot. Therefore, it is recommended to try following this procedure when installing Microsoft Updates:

1) Check Microsoft Update: install all security-related patches
2) Reboot
3) Repeat step 1: repeat step 2 if anything was installed at this step
4) Run a full rescan with the PSI

Hope the foregoing is of some help....regards,
