Honestly...although Secunia is a program that others seem to revere...the only updates that I worry about are the critical security updates available via Windows Update.

 

IME, most other programs do not require or put forth frequent updates...unless they are security updates for said program.  That means AV, AntiMalware apps and not much of anything else.

 

If what you installed is/was a critical update, there was no need of Secunia to alert you to such...Windows does that.

 

I can't answer your question since I have no idea whether what you installed...is/was a critical update.  Many members here use Secunia, so I suggest waiting for a response from one such person :).

I Hamluis

 

I was honestlly not sure what I was doing I was unsuccesful in my atempts with the downloads.

 

On the Secunia web site a Secunia offical states the (msxml)4x has reached the end of its life on April

 

12th 2014. Every time I boot up Secunia says this programs needs downloading Manualy.

 

I have been looking on other forums and lot of people have the same issue

 

Thanks for reply

Terrano,

 

I've been getting the same warning message from Secunia PSI myself for many months, but it seems to be a fairly harmless warning.

 

An "End of Life" warning is much less dangerous than being told that installed software is "Insecure".

 

I've tried the manual download fix offered by PSI, but it just doesn't ever work for me, so I simply ignore it.

 

At least so far, my ignoring it has caused no problems for my computer.  Hopefully, Secunia will eventually tweak PSI to stop warning about something they can't offer a fix to.


Google is my friend. Make Google your friend too.
