This installation of Microsoft Windows XP Professional is insecure and potentially exposes your system to security threats!

Secunia strongly recommends that you update this program by installing the update that is provided by the vendor of this program.

I have checked my Microsoft Updates and they are all installed. Why is Secunia reporting an insecurity?

Have you tried rebooting? Many M$ updates are only applied after you reboot, for some reason.

I un-installed and re-installed Secunia and then did a full scan and this seems to have corrected the problem.

Thanks for your advice.
