Hi, this is what I get,

This installation of Microsoft Windows XP Professional (Service Pack 3) is insecure and potentially exposes your system to security threats!

Secunia strongly recommends that you update this program by installing the update that is provided by the vendor of this program.


Yet Microsoft update that I'm redirected by PSI, says that I'm all updated!

So I'm baffled...
anyone else having this issue?

I have the same problem and I am signed up for all Microsoft updates and they are all up to date. Going to MS website does not help. I have even tried selective non-essential updates without success of eliminating this notice. Maybe Secunia has this one wrong, do you think? It seems we can't do much with this anyway. Either repair (can't) or remove. Then we certainly have a computer that does not work.

Hi, Read some earlier posts and found out all we have to di is "Re-Scan" the program. Should take about 5 minutes and all should be well. Worked for me despite being skeptical that it could be that simple.

Hi,

When updating Microsoft Applications, it is a good idea to keep in mind that some Microsoft Updates do not "kick in" until after a reboot. Therefore, it is recommended to try following this proceduce when installing Microsoft Updates:

1) Check Microsoft Update, install all security-related patches
2) Reboot
3) Repeat step 1, repeat step 2 if anything was installed at this step
4) Run a full rescan with the PSI

hope this helps.

Re-scanning doesn't help me. I had this error for several weeks and I can't get it to go away.

Hi,

@Cherpup

Did you try following the guide I posted in this thread? Most likely, a reboot followed by a rescan is all you need.

hope this helps.
