I'm running win 7 64 bit with all the latest patches. According to PSI 2.0 (after my 1st scan) Microsoft Uodate was "not found" on my pc. I looked under control panel and there was MS Update where it should be. I tried a scan for updates and it scanned and found none which should be right because it just found and updated some on 5/\9/12 @7:48 am. Any idea what's up with this?

Hello. If the updates relate to .NET Framework, please see http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/126...

If they do, you may wish to close this and add your comments there.

If they don't, it will help for you to say what updates are 'missing'.

Actually it's saying that it can't find the Microsoft update program itself. The one that runs on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. The program is there. I checked, but PSI isn't seeing it for some reason.

U are correct - your problems is nothing to do with the thread U have been pointed to. For a start U are using Windows 7 & that problem appears confined to a few users of XP.

I can understand that U have found the Windows Update icon in Control Panel & Windows update works from there.

Can U explain a bit more about what U are expecting from PSI?

Which version of PSI are U using? 2.0.0.4003 for example.

What happens when U are scanning & it get to "Determining Missing Microsoft Patches" & "Waiting For Microsoft Security Patch Check"? Does that work OK?

Are U expecting Windows Update to be present as a programme in the Scan Results Page?
