I would have to hear more about your computer before I could think of what could be causing it. I'm running Windows 7 ultimate and I haven't gotten any warnings from Secunia about it. If you're talking about IE7 that's another story, but you're the first person I know of to get a warning about W7.

I ended up running a specific search at Microsoft Update and it found whatever my computer was missing. I tried to delete my post but was only able to edit and remove the body.

Do you know how to delete a post once it has been posted?

Last edited on 28th Dec, 2009 08:48 Hi,
we generally don't close threads after a problem has been resolved. It can be quite helpful for users to have an archive of old problems + solutions so search in case a similar problem could arise. Deleting the Original Post will only cause the thread to look confusing to readers.
Hope this helps.

I'm glad you pointed that out. I was the first member to respond and when I went back later to see if anything else had been added the content of the original thread was gone and I couldn't remember what the question was. If it were up to me, I'd delete the thread entirely because as you said without the content no one knows what it's about.

I did not realize that that was the process; or I would not have deleted the content. At the time, I found the problem fixed and did not want to inconvinience others by answering a question that had been dealt with. In the future I leave a simple thank you reply and leave the content alone.
