I find it odd that when scanning using the simple interface I receive no alerts. Yet when I go to the Advanced interface, there are 4 alerts noted. Flashplayer, Powerpoint, MSXML and Java. I know the Java shows up because I haven't uninstalled the older version yet(and that's what it's pointing to), but why didn't they show up under the Simple Interface? If they are true vulnerabilities, should it matter what interface I am using?

Yes it does matter. The simple interface scans your regular ok programs but, when you get to the advanced stage of your scanning then, everything pop's up on your operating system. That's what I scan my system from. The Advanced stage. It's awesome to see what is a potential threat to your system. I hope this helped you out. Have a great day.

Thanks for your reply. I guess I will just use the Advanced interface since it is a more thorough assessment of my system.

The reason why on the simple interface you see nothing wrong, but on advanced you do is because easy to patch programs are the only ones that show up when doing a simple scan. When you do an advanced scan everything shows up, no matter how much of a PITA it may be to patch.

I like the Advanced interface.

Sun Java was notorious for leaving old vulnerable versions on systems and became a well known Open Target for malware purveyors.

Go to Add/Remove Programs and un-install all Sun Java installs then reboot.

Download JavaRa then run it to remove Sun Java remnants then us it to install the latest version:
