PSI told me that windows 7 was insecure and I needed to download KB2425227, a Microsoft update. When I downloaded this I was told that it was already installed.
Has this happened to anyone else?

Are you now saying that the update is showing in psi and no insecurity is detected ?

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,
