I've found PSI very useful on my Windows XP laptop, but have run into a glitch I've been unable to resolve.

When I run a PSI scan, it tells me that one of my programs which poses a threat is Microsoft Office PowerPoint Viewer 2003 11.0.8164.0, which it finds at c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\PPTVIEW.EXE. When I click on the icon for Download Solution, I am directed to Microsoft's site to download Security Update for PowerPoint Viewer 2003 (KB969615).

When I download and attempt to run this, however, it produces an error message stating "There are no products affected by this package installed on this system" and exits.

Any suggestions on what to do next? (Apart from upgrading to Office 2007 or uninstalling.) Thanks much in advance.

I have the same exact problem. I find the executable right where it says it is. It appears that Microsoft's update is not looking there for it.
I still don't know how to fix it.

I have the same problem. I'm not a computer pro so I'm not sure what to do. Did you ever get an answer that a layman could understand and work a fix?

Yes, I was able to fix it after consulting with the thread linked by Maurice. Basically I did this:

-- Go to the link at microsoft.com provided by Secunia to download a fix. Save this executable file.

-- Instead of running the executable file, use WinZip to extract the file pptview.exe (the file Secunia was reported as being a problem).

-- Move this pptview.exe to the directory where the problematic file was installed (c:\program files\microsoft office\office11 in my case).

The only hassle was that I didn't have WinZip installed on my system, and 7-Zip, the extraction software I prefer to use, wouldn't extract pptview.exe by itself. So I had to download and install WinZip, use it, then uninstall it.
