I received warnings re Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.x (End of Life) and Microsoft Excel 2003 (Insecure) but when I tried to solve them, Adobe said Error: aplication already installed and Microsoft said there were no priority updates available. So why the warnings? I have PSI 2.0. JamesS

Do you have a later version of Adobe Reader installed? Which Adobe Reader versions are shown in the control panel?

Please post the troubleshoot report for the programs causing problems in the Forum. You access the troubleshoot report by double clicking the program in the scan results and clicking Troubleshoot report in the menu on the right.

If you only have Adobe Reader 4.x, then you are SERIOUSLY out of date.

I've just run an update when Secunia PSI stated that my Adobe Reader (9.x) was out of date - it downloaded the correct update for 9.4 and logged it as patched; however, I happened to know that Adobe Reader 10 is available so proceeded to to download the latest version directly from their website (it'll only give you the latest version applicable to your OS), so you may want to try this.

On the MS Excel 2003 front, you state that no priority updates are avaialble, but have you checked the optional updates and/or for any previously hidden updates?
