Currently Secunia PSI tells me Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) 4.x needs updating. When I click to update it examines the program then opens Download Center for MSXML Core Services 6.0. If I download that and install it, will it uninstall MSXML 4.0 SP3 Parser? if not, can I uninstall it myself without problems? THANKS for your help!

Janderson and I are experiencing the same issue. I've read a few of the other threads, but I'm still confused. I'm very nervous when attempting to delete. When I go into Programs and Features/Uninstall, I do see six 4.0 files, SP2 and SP3. There is no 6.0.

When I follow the path through the computer, I see 13, 14, 16; however, the 16 was not dated recently for a download. It has a March 2014 date. I only attempted to download a few days ago.

Thanks for your help.

There is a very large thread here:

https://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/15...

If you scroll down you will see a large post that I created that gives information about the background to this issue & a section on what to do.

Worth looking at before you do anything else - it answers most of your questions to date.

It will be interesting what you report back when you try the section marked WHAT TO DO.

Hope this helps.

Thank you, Maurice -- your reference contains the information I will need to resolve this question. I cannot think of further information needed and will close this thread (assuming I can do that successfully).

I started this thread after an unsuccessful search for such information. Apparently my query was not adequate to find the work you did. I had to do a similar exercise some years ago and had a similar problem finding the right place to work.

Thank you for all the effort you have put into this! Wish I could pass along a case of wine somehow, because I'm betting you won't get it from Secunia....

Thanks also for the tip about Heimdal -- I shall explore that!

Warm regards
