The latest Secunia scan shows this as a level 2 threat. I've downloaded all the updates from the "solution" link but have not been able to eradicate the threat. Also, I'm a little confused as my operating system is Windows XP Media Centre NOT Professional!
Any help would be appreciated.

Give this a shot:

Set Automatic Updates to simply notify you of any updates which need to be downloaded and installed. Its weird, but when I did this then suddenly at some point within the next 24 hours Windows Update found updates which needed to be downloaded and installed. Those updates, as I recall, required that the computer be rebooted after installation.

Many thanks for that. I did as suggested and, even though unlike you I didn't need to install any more updates, the threat on a follow up scan had been removed. Still a mystery though!

He he. I'm glad it worked. I never bothered to delve into why this seems to work. Don't know and don't care as long as it worked. :-)
