    A Trend-Micro PC-cillin Internet Security Check gave this result:

    The following security vulnerabilities were found on this computer:

    High MS05-004
    Very High MS07-016


    I clicked on Windows Update and found that I apparently needed a Security Update for MS.NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 (KB928366), which I downloaded and installed. Then I rebooted my computer, ran another Trend-Micro Security Check and discovered that these two "vulnerability checks" were still there! (In fact, I may have downloaded and installed this twice.)

    At this point I don't recall what I did after that, but I Googled around and tried a thing or two to clear up my problem. Well, whatever I did, now whenever I run a T-M Security Check I see that the only "vulnerability" found is: Very High MS07-016. Somehow I must've done something that cleared up the High MS05-004 vulnerability.

    Could someone please tell how to clear up the one remaining vulnerability? I would greatly appreciate whatever help I can get. By the way, how dangerous is it for me to continue to have this one "Very High" vulnerability? Thank you.

    Well, I guess I got smart.

    As Trend-Micro's website recommended, I went to the Microsoft Security Bulletins website and followed the steps given. After applying the related security patch, I ran yet another T-M Security Check. This time it showed that there are no longer any MS vulnerabilities on my computer.:)
