The Microsoft secuity patch for interactive training 3.x will not install. I have checked the Microsoft knowledge base and have not found a solution. I have also checked in Add and Remove Programs; I find that a patch with the same Microsoft number was installed in 2007. Everytime I run a scan the same security threat is there. How can I either install the patch or remove it from Windows update so that it will not try to install it everytime I shut down the computer?

I notice you have just today become a Secunia user ? Are you using the Simple or Advanced interface ? I'm not familiar with the problem you are particularly experiencing, but I may be able to give some help.
Alongside the insecurity, have you clicked on the + sign to expand the entry to find further information? Technical details, so on and so forth ? You may find more version no's etc., there.

First,welcome to the community.Re your question, if you are sure that you have this program installed, MS will not download the same one again. However,if there is an update, installing that would resolve the issue.
That being said, remember,after an issue you always restart your computer and then scan. If no change, Secunia has an ignore list. If a program is safe you can add it to an ignore list and it will not be included in the scan.Use this only when a program is shown as insecure and you know the opposite. Good luck and safe browsing.

Did you reboot after the install? Do that, then re-scan.

I have been running it in the simple mode. After your question concerning which mode I was running I switched to the advanced mode. It appears that there are quite a number of issues that don't appear in the simple mode. I'll tackle those issues this weekend and let you know how I made out.

Thanks for the help,

Marty
