PSI shows 17 programs "insecure" now after they have been updated by MS, including: .Net Framework 2,3,4x, Excel 2010, Explorer 9.x (64 bit), SQL Server 2005, Silverlight 4x, Win 7, Sun Java 1.6.x / 6.x.
MS shows no updates necessary/available, so does Sun. What gives?
I guess I can just "ignore until your program "catches up" with updates?

Oh, Yes I did re-scan the HD's....

Hi

Did you restart your computer, and then performed a full scan with the Secunia PSI?

Yup, now I have 20 "insecure".....
MS still states "up to date" when any one is picked to "fix"....
Guess I just have to wait?

Hi Maurice. I'm fine thanks but busier than usual!

I've found KB2541012 - it's shown under the update for the 2007 Office System.

Just rescanned - now 97%. Just the usual culprits now - two Shockwave and one Flash. The latter should be aotu-updated by PSI so I'll check again in the morning.
Goodnight!

Password problem or I would have answered sooner!!...

Well, now have a 100% rating, nothing shows needing fixing!!!!! PTL Always

I have "prodded" several updates from MS (26 yesterday, 7 today).
I uninstalled PSI & reinstalled it later after the last batch of updates from MS.
I went through with Advanced Systems Care & "batch" deleted a number of "free" programs that I did not need (I enjoy playing with free ones to find good ones for my friends)

So, now the Icon is GREEN & I am going to create a new Image of the HD as well as a backup and a restore point!

I will let you know if it holds......

Good news. @Taffy078 appears to be saying exactly the same thing.
