States these need updating. Are these something I need?

Insecure - MSXML 4.0 SP3 Core Services 4.x

(This requires a Parser License Agreement?)

End of Life - Microsoft Removal Tool: Blaster/Nachi

I see that you are using the Secunia PSI 2.0 version. Why not install the 3.0 version of Secunia PSI?

I see 6.0 is the latest version, but why not uninstall it and use Secunia Online Software Inspector (OSI)?

I agree about using the online version. I had updated to version 3 and had nothing but trouble afterwards. It took forever to download (I don't have a very fast connection), and often after programs, especially browsers, had updated, Secunia still showed them as the old Insecure versions. Now I just run it once a month, after the MS Updates when I do all the rest of my maintenance work.

hmmm....looks like I might need to research the OSI 6.0 tool. I have had good results from using the PSI 2.0 and 3.0 tool.

The on-line scan is here: Welcome to Secunia Online Software Inspector (OSI). Look under the top lines where you can download the new version.

Jane - I had the same item come up on my daughter's laptop when I ran Secunia. She has Windows 7 and has been using google chrome (whereas I mostly use firefox). Don't know if that's why this got turned up.

I don't know what the program is, but I've tended to do just do what Secunia tells me, so I did download and install it - and all seems fine - but that was just this morning. I was using Secunia PSI 3.

I only use the online scanner have never installed the PSI. I don't like to install a lot of programs on my pc anyway and if I can get the same results from the online scan I do that, however you do have to remember to go do that scan!

another great resource is to check the calendar of updates daily.
