For the last three days every time I boot up my computer Secunia tells me that my IE8 windows Media Player 5x and XP Pro have urgent updates I should download.
the MS Update site tells me that I have the latest version of all these three and NOTHING is available.
What is/isn't happening here?

It seems a bit of a coincidence that Patch Tuesday was three days ago !!!
You may have the latest versions of the progs tho' missed some or all of the latest updates ? Just a suggestion for further searches. I'm running Vista.....someone else may be of more assistance.

Mogs, you could have a point there, I was away most of the week and only manually downloaded the MS updates after I returned home because of the Secunia warning, normally I get them via the automatic option.
I'll wait and seewhat happens over the next few days.

I am still having this problem and I am begining to think it could be due to Patch Tuesday as I have had problems with MS before after updating.
I did also think that it could have been that for the last few months every time I tried to open MS Office I got a "This is not a genuine MS version" message. On checking up I found this to be correct it was a pirated version, (My computer is a second hand one)for the last week or two when I tried opening word or Excel I got a message to say "This programme is not installed on your computer".
Well now it is correct I have un-installed it in the hope that this would fix the updating problem, but it has made no difference, I click on the Secunia link to the updates do a search and there is nothing there.
Secunia ia saying all sorts of dire things could happen if I don't update and MS say no updates one of them is either totally out of touch or lying.

When you updated manually did U use this link:

http://www.update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/v6...

and then click the CUSTOM button?

If not, what updates remain outstanding when U try it?

I used the link directly from the Secunia scan page, I don't know which one it was.
The question is now academic as sometime in the last three hours the fault has cleared and my Secunia scan shows no problems.
It has got me baffled just what the problem cause was.
