Now running PSI 2, no probs (for some of us XP users, a relief after probs with earlier release)

But it is telling me XP SP3 is out of date, and MDAC2x. When I run Microsoft Update, comes back saying I have nothing to update.

These issues usually resolve themselves. Anything to worry about this time?

Hello.
Below is the recommended procedure to follow :-
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 try following 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

For your own peace of mind, you might find Maurice Joyce's post useful, if the foregoing doesn't work out.....see here :-

Hope the foregoing is of some help....regards,

I forced a re-scan by Secunia and these two 'insecures' went. I had thought my last Secunia scheduled scan was after the last MS Update, but if it is as you say, there can be a delay, maybe I was wrong.

Hello again hitcbcs. Glad that you resolved matters for yourself. Not exactly sure that I understand what you mean by having "forced" a scan. I rarely use the schedule facility, and usually run two manual scans each week anyrate. The schedule runs one week hence from the last. Following Windows updates, I've usually rebooted anyrate...so when I scan there's very rarely been a problem showed up.
If the problem is now resolved ; as you are the originator of the thread, you have the option to close it, by selecting ACCEPT. This will lock the thread : preventing tag-on posts and reminder e mails. Thankyou and regards,
