@ mommytofurballs

From your request I see that you have windows 7.

The threat warning in PSI is from the NTI program.

Search in the vendor site for an update to (msxml) there.

BTW the msxml now as updated from MS is: 4.20.9876.0

Good luck.

I agree with John. The update must come from the vendor.

The latest status of XML 4 is here & U have the correct site.

MSXML 4.0
+++++++++
MSXML4 was shipped as an independent, downloadable SDK targeted at Independent Software Vendors and third parties. It is an upgrade for but not a replacement to MSXML3 as version 3 still provides legacy features. Versions 4 and 3 may be run concurrently.

MSXML 4.0 SP3 is the most recent version released in March 2009, SP2 support expired in April 2010.

The download link is here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx...

PLEASE READ THE RELEASE NOTES - A download link to read them is on the same site.

If U do require to update your current MSXML4 Secunia picks it up as secure with version 4.30.2107.0 provided U have downloaded the additional patch via MS Update.

May be a good idea to lock (Accept) this thread. It will prevent U getting emails from "tag on" posts. I will unsubscribe now U are fixed up.
