On an otherwise up to date Windows 7 system, Secunia PSI is warning that Microsoft XML Core Services MSXML 4.x needs to be updated. The update link is for MSXML 6, and of course using that link does nothing to eliminate the warning. Details show that the system has msxml4.dll version 4.30.2117.0 -- help !

MSXML 4 is End of Life. The information given by PSI now and in the past is very misleading. Your Windows 7 was released with MSXML 6 already installed which replaced MSXML 4.

This subject was a hot topic years ago and there is much reading here that may help you decide what to do:

The only way to completely secure your PC is to uninstall MSXML 4 which will cripple the very old programme(s) it supports.
