You have not given much information including what OS & SP U are using.

Does this thread help?

Edit:

Before doing to much work is the vulnerability on your C Drive?

FINDING A VULNERABILITY FILE PATH
=================================

To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, use or switch to the ADVANCED interface, then :

1 Click on the + sign of the programme to "expand' it.
2 Click on Technical Details in the Toolbox to see the installation path of the detected file. (Copy (CTRL+C) & paste (CTRL+V) the Installation Path of the file back to the Forum if U are unsure what to do next)).

Maurice, I am not Pettybone, but I may have the same problem. I upgraded my Dell 8100 computer years ago from Me to XP Home, SP3. In spite of occaisional encounters with malware, the system is running good now. However, when I turned off the computer last night, it hung up and I had to force it off this morning. On boot up I got error messages that Windows update has not been able to install the Kb953297 update for a week (the last time I rebooted). I tried to manually install it and got the message "C:\NDP1.1sp1-KB953297-X86.exe is not a valid Win32 application." I checked the C:\ drive and there was a file by that name but it had no size (0 KB). I deleted it and downloaded the update directly from Microsoft. It installed OK.

Meanwhile I used Secunia scan to find two programs that were vulnerable. Thanks.

No, I just used the online scan. But I installed PSI for the future. Thanks again.
