I am getting 3 Microsoft warnings, IE8 update, XP Security update, and .Net framework update warnings when I scan my computer. These have all been updated successfully from Microsoft and I have checked them twice but still get the warnings from Secunia.

Any ideas why?

@hawghead ,

After an M$ update you need to reboot and run a full PSI scan ; then recheck with M$ updates and repeat as necessary .

When there are no updates showing an additional reboot/full scan is required . A scond one may be needed for the updates to register correctly . Sometimes a cold restart helps .

In addition to that , some people (I am one:( , are having problems with the actual .Net update .

Come back here again if your problem persists .

Just in case you are still having [unspecified] .Net problems, this *may* help:

specifically the last post which offers the following:

"uninstall all 3 (in my case) KB updates under the NET 2.0 group in Add/Remove programs. After doing so and rebooting, I went to Windows Update and was offered the Family Pack service pack update. Installed that and was up to date!"

It worked for me as well.

@ottchris-primary ,

Thank you for your interest .

I did resolve my problems based on verssion 2.0 ; in my case , I needed rather more uninstalling as I described here in my last post :-
