I installed Win7 64-bit and have installed all the latest patches, including kb2532531. I've re-booted several times and re-ran the PSI scan several times, but it still says I need to install kb2532531, even though it's installed. Anyone have any ideas on this?

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 security features that were checked, in particular missing Microsoft hot fixes (patches), with additional links to fixes or help lines.

Do not be put off by all the written hype about IT Professionals etc - it is easy to use & understand the results.

More details & the download link are here:

I ran MBSA and it also says the update isn't installed. But, when I try to install it, it says the update IS installed. So, I uninstalled it, re-booted, re-installed it, re-booted again, then ran MBSA. Again, it says it's not installed. PSI also still says it's not installed. But, clearly, it is.

I think it may be a problem with the update itself. I don't think it's reporting a proper installation in all of the proper places. For example, the update may be reporting it's installed in a certain place in the registry, but MBSA and PSI may be looking somewhere else in the registry for install information.

FYI - This problem is also happening on another PC. At first I thought it was just a reporting issue with PSI, but now I'm leaning more toward the update and WIndows 7 itself.

It's not hurting anything as everything is running fine. It's just annoying to never be able to reach 100% in PSI. Currently, it's at 98%, with this update being the only issue.

Being install & being installed & correctly registered by Windows are different. What PSI & Microsoft are telling U is that hotfix is not correctly installed.

Your systems will work OK because they are using the old vulnerable files.

Until U get that hotfix registered in Windows U are vulnerable to the security issue it fixes.

How have U tried to reinstall it?

Are U using 32 bit or 64 Bit versions of Windows?

As stated in the first post, I'm using win 7 64-bit.

As for the install, I'm downloading the patch directly from Microsoft's website and using the windows standalone installer. Basically, I double click the file and it installs. It takes about 20 seconds and then prompts for a reboot. Which I do. When I check in the installed patches section of programs and features, it shows up as being installed. But when I scan the pc with MBSA or PSI, it doesn't. As far as registering it with windows, I would think it would do that upon installation. If not, I should get an error message.

Normally, I would use Windows update to automatically keep the pc up to date, but this pc is at work and behind a firewall that doesn't allow access to windows update. I manually install every update on the pc and haven't had any issues at all until I got to this one particular patch.

The only thing I can come up with is the fact that we don't use windows update. But MBSA didn't report I was missing any other updates and MS website doesn't show any dependencies or prerequisites for this update. So I'm at a loss.

Looks like U are not alone. This gives some possible fixes:
