I am running version 1.5.0.2 on a Win 7 64 bit PC. It is showing IE8, IE8 64 bit and Windows 7 as insecure.

I have installed all the updates provided by Microsoft. When I click on the "download solution" button, MS says all is fine.

This has happened in the past, but has resolved itself within one day of the MS patch tuesday releases. This time, PSI is stilling giving false positives.

Is there anything to be done other than selecting the ignore option?

I, too, have had some PSI reporting irregularities with M$ software, using 1.5.0.2 on XP.

My situation eventually sorted itself out after several checks with M$ Update, where downloads occurred (for some reason I didn't get Auto Update this time round); many re-boots and re-scans.

If you have satisfied yourself that there are no more available updates from M$, it may be a case of waiting a short while longer.

I would not recommend setting an "Ignore" on such important software - "out of sight" could well turn into "out of mind" to your detriment.

You could double check if you have all M$ KB updates, by downloading and running Belarc Advisor:

Thanks for this. I did a Belarc scan and it did find one outstanding MS update. However, it related to .net 3.5.1, which is not installed on my PC. I don't have any versions of .net framework installed.
Since PSI is finding problems with IE8, and since the outstanding MS update is over 2 weeks old, I don't believe this is what PSI is seeing.
I'll wait a while to see if the issue resolves itself.
Thanks again

gwilki............................................ .................................................. ...........................There are a number of recent threads on the forum concerning .NET problems, which it might be worth you reading thro'.
The current arrangements for Windows 7 are as follows; with a fully patched machine.....tho' I have it on good authority that you need not .NET 4.
WINDOWS 7
2.0.50727.4955
3.0.4506.4926
4.0.30319.1
It seems likely perhaps that some interdependance has evolved, and that is what Secunia and Belarc are indicating as being absent in your case. Just a suggestion tho'................regards,
