RE: PSI says Windows 7 is insecure

When updating Microsoft Applications, it is a good idea to keep in mind that some updates only "kick in" after a reboot. Therefore, it is recommended to follow this procedure when updating Microsoft Applications (Unless, of course, simply rescanning your system has fixed the alert).
1) Check Microsoft Update, install all patches flagged as "Critical"
3) Repeat step 1, and if anything was installed at this step, repeat step 2
4) Rescan with the PSI
hope this helps.

I noted that you are using psi 2.0 Beta....but for the purpose of scanning, the core engine is fundamentally the same as in previous versions apparently.
Hope this is of some assistance.........regards,
