You have given a warning about a security threat for windows xp professional but I can't find a relevant update in the list of windows updates. What should I look for?

Enable ADVANCED mode then go to Insecure Programs then click on + to find the Installation Path then check Toolbox then Download Solution or Solution Wizard

Go to Open Folder then copy the name of the file causing the "security threat"

Example:
CCleaner is a good file for me:
C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe

You've lost me. I don't understand your suggestion. Could you do one for a computer novice?
