I was hoping somebody might help me to understand why, if I am running 7, it shows as XP home edition in secunia. Does anybody have any ideas please?

I can solve this misdetection, if you're willing to help by providing some information.
This information is containing in the Windows registry, which means you'll be working with regedit. Please understand that working in the Windows registry can affect critical system settings, so it's extremely important not to tamper with anything you aren't absolutely sure what does.

To get the appropriate information, click "Start", and type "Regedit" either in the "Run" box for XP, or directly in the program search bar on Vista/Win7.

Once this tool is open, navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion.
I need to know the contents of the keys ProductName, CSDVersion, CurrentBuildNumber, BuildLab, CurrentType, CurrentVersion.

You can either paste those keys here, or send them to us at support@secunia.com
