I'm being told that XP Pro is vunerable to this advisory, however WU does not present a fix, and I've installed both KB975560 and KB977914 which were refered to. PSI still reports my system as vunerable, can you advise the specific KB I should be applying to resolve this apparantly spurious warning.

Cheers,
D.

Hello D ,

Who exactly is telling you what ??

The two KB's you mention were part of 10 or so I received/agreed to download on "patch tuesday" - 09/02/2010 as per the date of SA38511 - for my XP Home Edition from Microsoft Updates .

For a M$/Windows "patch" to show up in PSI you need to reboot and do a full scan ; if XP stlll shows insecure you need to run the PSI solution again (or go to the update site yourself and check for "high priority updates") and repeat the process again and again if necessary , until PSI shows your XP as secure/patched .

Hope this is clear enough.

Anthony

Hi Anthony,

Sorry if I was not clear. The "who" is PSI

By following the advisory it leads to the M$oft update/KB's indicated.

I've got them both, but the warning persists beyond a reboot, and rescan.

I think its spurious, however it maybe it need another update.

WU does not offer me any more updates, so it thinks all is up to date.

Thanks,
D.

D ,

PSI is very seldom spurious , but of course not 100% perfect .

Where is PSI showing the Advisory ?? in the "insecure" or the "patched" tab (using "advanced" mode) .

It can take time to reset itself ; if the problem persists more than a couple of days , come back here .

Belarc will give you an up to date second opinion/state of your M$ security updates (I find it very handy and keep a copy of it"s results with my "back up") :-

Hope this is useful .
