Secunia continues to claim that the viewer is insecure and needs the recommended update. The software is updated and upon attempting to reinstall it again, the software indicates it is updated. I did a rescan. What is happening and do I need to do something further?

The same thing happens to me. When I select the solutions it does not install the update. Nor does going to the Microsoft update (for office)
What gives?
Also for the Chrome even though I installed in each of the accounts on the Vista machine separately.

@rebolig if your d drive is a backup or install drive it would be safe to create a ignore rule for this drive. Secunia PSI will still scan the drive but the results are filtered & therefore the nag ends too.

Woke up this morning to a new PowerPoint Viewer 2007 SP2. In rescanning, PSI sees it as part of the operating system and thus does a full scan. Wonder why.

I'm thinking that this is a false positive. The ppt viewer complained about on my machine is part of my full blown office install, not a stand alone viewer. As such it gets patched whenever daddy powerpoint does, the exe is just a wrapper for DLLs common to powerpoint and the viewer. If powerpoint itself is reported as secure then the version of the viewer in that directory should also be secure, hence no patches being offered for it by windows update even though PSI says it needs them.

My Powerpoint viewer was insecure so I clicked on the wizard clicked the link to Microsoft and downloaded the newest version of Powerpoint Veiwer, installed it which still showed up as insecure.

Following installation I ran an update of Microsoft and Powerpoint Viewer SP2 and Office SP2 was found, following installation of the two SP's I ran another Microsoft update and Powerpoint security patch was available which I downloaded and installed, after this Powerpoint Viewer showed as upto date and secure by Secunia.

Sorry if the above is not simply explained but hopefully it helps.
