I've used MSupdate, I've downloaded the latest version directly and I've even gone via PSI's own pages but still it insists that it is insecure.

Suggestions?

Oh and here's the output from the "troubleshoot report"

I think you've missed my point.

I HAVE UPDATED - it is PSI that is not recognising that I have done so.

@ stubbyd

In the mentioned site someone has advised to uninstall the KB in question, reboot and again goto windows update to force the installation of this KB again and maybe that will solve the problem.

Good luck.

Hello.
As follows is the officially recommended procedure :-

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


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

It also mentioned that the install of the particular patch failed which is why they advised uninstalling and re-installing..

My install has worked just fine - it is, I repeat, just PSI not recognising the fact.

Yes, yes and yes.

Sorry if I sound a little tetchy, I don't mean too but I thought that enough info (brief as it was) had been provided in my initial note. If not directly then reading between the lines - so I apologise if that's the case.

I have rebooted.

I have attempted to install (successfully) the patch from several different avenues.

I have uninstalled and re-installed.

I have re-run a PSI scan several times.

I have rebooted - did I say that already :)

I can see where U are coming from!

U have not mentioned if U have double checked using MBSA. That should completely confirm that the KB is installed. Details included if U want to try it.

If confirmed as installed I would email Secunia Support at - support@secunia.com - they may ask for a verbose log to sort it out.

MICROSOFT BASELINE SECURITY ANALYSER (MBSA)

If U are having difficulty confirming the status of Microsoft updates installed on your PC U may wish to install MBSA.

It scans a PC,highlights general MS security features, in particular missing Microsoft hot fixes (patches), with additional links to fixes or help lines.

More details & the download link are here:
