Hi mcmillan - and welcome to secunia.

Being new, you won’t know that this section, “ Vulnerabilities”, is used by the Secunia team to announce news of problems.
You will have more chance of getting help, and more quickly, if you post a new thread in one of the other sections (see the list on the left).

Exactly what is the problem you are having please? Also, it will help when you reply if you tell us what PC/operating system etc you have, as I have done in my signature.

Best wishes

Hi,

When dealing with updates for Microsoft products, it is important to remember that some of them don't "kick in" until you've rebooted your system. Therefore, when updating windows applications, it is recomended to install all available patches from Windows Update, reboot, check windows updates again (installing everything available and rebooting), and then finally rescan.
You should be shown as secure.

hope this helps.
