Upon my last Secunia system score there was indicated amongst the programs to be actualized:
Microsoft removal tool,
I followed all steps proposed and downloaded the version 4.18 created on 2013/03/12.
I wondered whether the last Microft Windows XP update did not provide this program. However I found it was already correctly installed and worked properly. So why was this program indicated as "old" by the Secuna system score?
So far I did not patch the PC by the downloaded file, since it is obviously not necessary.

Thank you in advance for answering..

Sounds like you're referring to the Blaster Nacchi one. This has been end-of-life for a long time. I've created an ignore rule for it. Do you know how to do that? (It depends which version of PSI you're running.)

Thank you. You are confirming what AVIRA is advising in this case. I found out how to ignore updates for this program.
