I hope this the correct forum for this problem.
Secunia shows Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML)6.x as insecure. When I click the download solution icon I get a box saying: "The link you are trying to open requires IE to function correctly and will therefore not use your default browser". When I click OK it opens IE which is my default browser and goes to windows update and says my updates are all up to date.
The location of the file is: RECOVERY D:\Windows\System32\msxml6.dll.
There is also a msxml6r.dll in the same location. Not sure if it means anything. There is no file by that name in the Add\Remove area. I went to the vender page and tried to download the same program. It took about one second to download some kind of parser something.
I'm using Vista Premium (sucks).
Thanks

The Recovery (Partition) Drive that comes with OEM versions of Windows has no exposure & it is perfectly safe to create a Global ignore rule.

CREATING A GLOBAL IGNORE RULE
=============================

1.Click on the SETTINGS tab>scroll to the bottom & click on CREATE IGNORE RULE

2.In the RULE NAME BOX insert something like MY BACKUP DRIVE

3.In the RULE BOX type D:\
4.Click SAVE IGNORE RULE>CLOSE

All drives will continue to be scanned by default but the result from drive P will not be published.

Hi Maurice,
I created the rule and re-started the computer and ran another scan and the file is still there in the same D:\ location.
