Hi BrockIE7.

Did you install all the Windows updates this week? Did you then re-start your PC and then scan again?

Windows need a restart for the updates to become effective.

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 follow this procedure 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 the foregoing is of some help....regards,
