My Secunia indicates that Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition is a category 4 threat on my computer. There are no listed updates for whatever the threat is. I have followed the solutions link on 2 different days to the Microsoft update website and none, other than optional updates are available. Suggestions?

Hi Ronlee

I can't give you a definitive answer, but this seems to pop up from time to time.

The most recent thread is this:

The solution here was to upgrade PSI to version 1.5.0.1.

As a user for over a year, I would guess that you could still be using 1.5.0.0.

A simple uninstall (from add/remove), then fresh download could do it - it did for me re. another issue.

Hope this helps
