    I'm more inclined to believe it's reading site's like this that has helped keep this P.C clean.

    I thought they were indicating more along the lines that unless you installed with the original cd, you can never be sure of what was bundled with the OS. Don't get me wrong, I ran with an illegitimate copy for years, and never had much trouble with it. Now that I have a side business, and a some-what respectable job, I have gone completely legit. [I don't need that kind of trouble!]

    There are 2 ways to find if your OS is patched:

    Do a scan at Microsoft update (custom / express)..

    Or use PSI by secunia.com..

    Using pirated / cracked version of AV / OS gives you no protection at all.. It is actually the stupidest thing to do..
    I have been using PSI for a while and I really like it. Its very help full but there are some programs it doesn't redirect to the correct downloader but thats besides the point.

    Dont want to hijack the thread but has anyone had issues with adobe flash player? After scanning with PSI it picks up around 5 instances of adobe vulnerabilty. The general plugin and the activeX control.

    Now the solution both point to downloading the flash player again which I have done so and installed with the same results.

    Anyone got any comments about this?

    Cider it could be a case of false positive.. Maybe un-install reboot, re-install and re-run the psi tool and see what happens...

    I doubt it. I feel like they've been trying to fix this recent flaw for half a year now.
