John,
I suspect this is the message you are referring to?
https://1ncuig.bn1.livefilestore.com/y2pkvXiZUANqN...

Just ignore it.

You should expect all sorts of errors until such time as Secunia sort out their server issues which have been ongoing for a week.

The list includes extreme slowness of page loading on the Forum,slowness of loading the PSI GUI, errors on the Forum indicating users have been deleted, tray icon colours that bare no resemblance of the true status of a PC & Forum Log In errors.

In a nutshell treat anything from Secunia "with a pinch of salt" until they sort out the 4th rate service or make some public announcement of what the issues are.

Thank you! I'm also glad to know that some of the difficulty I've had logging onto Secunia Community pages is due to a server problem being corrected!

The quote from my first posting is the wording of the message I get when I click on the update button on Secunia. It was flagged as a manual update needed, and when I clicked on it, that's what came up. Also, I seem to have both the 32 and 64 bit versions of Internet Explorer 10.x and this is a 64 bit machine. Is that problematic?

Thank you for your kind attention!

John,
As I am sure you are aware a 64Bit version of Windows has a 64 & 32 Bit IE browser & by default Windows uses the 32 Bit version.

You should be seeing something like this:

https://1ncuig.bn1.livefilestore.com/y2pWMIjfpjaCg...

It is nice to be told that there may be an issue with IE but the solution offered to update is a long outstanding "wording" problem with PSI.

1. Secunia do not manage anything Microsoft so it should read "Use Windows Update".

2. In this instance that is a waste of time - there is no full patch available for IE & it remains uncertain whether IE 10 is affected.

3. You have also noted that clicking on the update link produces a silly message that IE is not supported.

If you have applied the Fix It tool supplied by Microsoft please be aware that it does not mitigate the alleged vulnerability in the 64 Bit version of IE.

Hope this helps.

Maurice,

Thank you, once again. I did not know that the 64 bit had both 64 and 32 bit parts, I didn't think I'd installed redundant versions. The Secunia display is just as you pictured it. Thanks. The answer then, is to ignore the message until something definitive is offered through Microsoft Update. I appreciate your explanation and kind attention!

John

Just for peace of mind I would apply this workaround if you have not already done so.

It does not work as partial fix for your 64 Bit version of IE.
