Hi Vicount;

Is XP showing in "Insecure" tab? Have you done MS Update yet? Did you restart your computer after the update (whether or not it tells you to)? Did you then do a new compleate scan in PSI?

Let me know if this helps or you need more.


regards;

Fred

Hi Vicount;

Sometimes PSI seems to 'hang' until a restart. Also MS Updates may have just (automatically, if you have it set that way) updated XP, although I doubt it as last update is about a week old.

Happy to hear 100%
