I am being told that I have four unsecure programs, all Microsoft applications, on my PC. Each time I try to use the update, it takes me to Microsoft Update, where I am told that my PC is up to date. Also, BelArc is showing all updates from Microsoft are installed. Can you tell me what is happening.
The programs in question are: MS OE 6 (64 bit),MSOE 6, Windows Media Player 10.x, and Windows XP Professional.
I am not using OE 6 of any iteration, and I do not use WMP.

Hi.
Often, MS will download updates silently, then wait for you to re-start. Give that a spin.
