These updates were part of the monthly security updates released on 8th March and do apply to your system. Check Add/Remove Programs to see if they have been installed. Try a restart and a full scan.

They are not installed. I checked there first. And if they were installed, it would be a false positive by Secunia. Regardless of that, the fact that MS seems to provide no KB article linking to the updates directly is unusual, and prevents an attempt to reinstall, etc.

I too have issues with secunia advising me to install these patches yet the microsoft bulletin @ http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2479943 (Scroll down to the bottom section..) says patch KB2479943 for my OS W7 -64 bit is not applicable.

Can I set secunia right? The only option within Secunia seems to be to ignore all windows 7 updates in Secunia.


Please advise,

B'rgds.

John.

But this says it does apply to Windows 7 64-bit.
