The windows updates - about 20 - of Oct 13th are still being reported an insecure.
I did do the reload interface.
Is there a way to resolve this anomaly?
Thanks

Apologies for stating the obvious but does Windows Update show that the updates were successful?

As well as the above advice; with M$ updates it is necessary to re-boot your PC, then maybe check updates again, and when there are no further updates to download, you should then run a full PSI scan.

Sometimes it is necessary to re-boot more than once for the installation to correctly kick in.

If none of the above advice helps, then post back with specifics.

Thanks for the replies.
I did discover one Windows update that I missed or it came in later.
It was for "Search Enhancement Pack". I did that update. I rebooted twice. I ran the reload interface. I still have 35 un-patched updates according to Secunia.
My log on to this forum failed so I had to re-do my profile. I am no longer Frank C. I am now FrankGC81

I now have NO Un-patched programs. The solution was to re-scan. I also hid those many optional updates in Windows Updates. This probably did not effect my results.

The log on process for this forum is very confusing. If I access it from Forum via the Secunia PSI program a password is not required. If I access the forum Via the Secunia web page a password is required. Now I have multiple ID's!.

Hi Frank

Sounds like you have everything under control.

The advice still stands re. M$ updates -- download, re-boot, check downloads again, re-boot (if applicable) and finally re-scan PSI.

If you think you may need to contribute to the forum from time to time, then you could consider the following, to simplify things re. log-in:

- bookmark the forum All Threads page in your preferred browser; log in with your user name and password, then set the browser to remember password for this site. Then for subsequent visits, all you need to enter is your username.

- and I never click the log out box - just close the tab/window.

Thank for the reply TiMow,
I miss understood the function of Reload Interface. I thought this scanned the programs. Now I realize what you meant by Full Scan.
Thanks
