What is your Operating System ? Have you installed the latest round of updates ?
Have you carried out a full scan since installing psi ?
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,

Are U suggesting that PSI is showing MSXML as vulnerable? If so U need to upgrade.

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:

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.
