After allowing Secunia PSI to go dormant on my machine for a short time, I updated to the latest version and ran it. I got an indication that Microsoft's Malicial Tool Remover needed to be manually updated. I updated the Microsoft item and ran the then updated program. I re-ran Secunia and found that it continued to indicate that the Microsoft program need to be updated.

At that point, I re-started my computer and re-ran the Microsoft Malicious Tool downwload only to find that when I re-ran indicated that I needed to manually update The Microsoft program. I once again re-started my computer and re-ran Secunia...getting the same result.

I then decided to delete Secunia and download it anew and run it.. After doing that, I still get the same indicated need to manually update the microsoft program.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I assume you are running Windows XP & are referring to the Microsoft Removal Tool Blaster/Nachi?

If that is the case it cannot be updated & should be showing on the scan result page as End of Life.

It has been End of Life for years & was replaced by Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool which Microsoft upload to your PC every month on Patch Tuesday.

The Microsoft Removal Tool Blaster/Nachi patch can be difficult to remove because in most cases it is embedded in SP2.

I would just create an ignore rule.
