My Psi gives message that Windows XP Home Edition service pack 3 has a vulnerability. This is not recognized by the Microsoft Update. The threat is listed as orange in the descriptor boxes.

I have visited the site several times and received other security updates, but PSI still delivers this message.

Here's a copy of the ususl/official reply concerning the problem :-
When updating Microsoft Applications, it is a good idea to keep in mind that some Microsoft Updates do not "kick in" until after a reboot. Therefore, it is recommended to try following this procedure when installing Microsoft Updates:

1) Check Microsoft Update: install all security-related patches
2) Reboot
3) Repeat step 1: repeat step 2 if anything was installed at this step
4) Run a full rescan with the PSI

Hope the foregoing is of some help....regards,
