Like most, I'm a Newbie and I hope I posted in the correct forum.

I learned last night that my pc has attempted numerous times in recent weeks to update security but the records show that it has failed. I finally got 4.x updated (according to Microsoft Update), however PSI scan states 2,3,and 4.x are all insecure. When I use auto update, Microsoft tells me my system is all up to date.

I hope the following are enough details...

2.x: Missing Microsoft Patches KB2416472
Instances found: c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspn et_wp.exe, version: 2.0.50727.4209

3.x: Missing Microsoft Patches KB2416472
Instances found: c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.0\Windows Communication Foundation\SMSvcHost.exe, version: 3.0.4506.4037

4.x: Missing Microsoft Patches KB2416472

What should I do?

The Microsoft solution is here

If the first step doesn't work, unfortunately it comes down to uninstalling all .NET Framework. Don't install 1.1 or 1.1 SP1 if you don't already have them installed. You can check in Control Panel Programs and Features.
