Vista Sp2 shows up as a successful install on June 19 2009 and yet Secunia shows it as uninstalled. My original installation on May 30 2009 failed but after getting in touch with Microsoft I installed it successfully. Why doesn't Secunia pick up the successful installation?

This failure has just come up in the last two months. It never showed up before as not being installed. I am still getting updates so I know I have it.

Hi Elderstin.

Where/how does Secunia show it as "uninstalled"? Scans report insecure/end-of-life/patched.

i.e. what is showing up as the problem, please?

Also, what version of Secunia are you using? It's shown in the bottom-right of the main Secunia screen.

Another idea for you is to run the (free) Belarc Advisor. It's a useful programme to cross -heck your security updates :-

Hoping this helps for now.

It is listed as "insecure" and I have checked Belarc and Vista SP 2 is listed there. It is listed in Windows Update. As I mentioned the first time the download failed (5-30-2009). I later had a successful download. (6-19-2009). It has been on my machine for well over a year and Secunia did not mention it as missing until recently.

I am using PSI V.5.0.2

It could be telling U that all the Windows updates available for Vista are not installed. I would run a manually Windows Update to see if there are any lurking U have missed.

Did Belarc give any indication U were missing patches?
