Hi

I keep getting warnings that Windows 7 needs to be patched but when I check there are no critical updates. What should I do?

Also, I keep getting warnings that Firefox 3.5x needs to be patched but I have Firefox 3.6x. Please let me know the solution to this. Many thanks.

I have re-scanned my system but the 2 warnings still show.

Hi,

Some Windows updates require you to reboot. Please try rebooting, checking Windows Update again, then rescanning after installing all patches now available. If anything installs, repeat the procedure.

As for Firefox. Did you click the "download solution" button in the PSI? Which version does Firefox claim to be from Help > About Mozilla Firefox?

After downloading a file with Firefox 3.0, you may be presented with an "Open File - Security Warning" box when you try to open the file. If you frequently download files, these warnings may become annoying over time.
Open Firefox and type "about:config" into the address bar, then press Enter. This will open a list of hidden Firefox settings.
Scroll down until you find the setting "browser.download.manager.scanWhenDone" in the left column.
This setting is set to "true" by default. Double-click on it to change it to "false". Files you download in Firefox will no longer be flagged.
Is still you find any problem click the link given below http://windows7.iyogi.net/support/troubleshooting/...
