  1. Unfortunately, modified system files are one thing that they are designed to check, as that could be a symptom of a virus attack of course. Apart for manually white-listing the files in the AV software, I suspect that there is no ideal solution to this, the AV software is only doing its job!
  2. If you're absolutely sure that it's a false positive, I suspect it's being flagged simply because the file has been modified. I've made really simple modifications to files with Resource Hacker, and my AV (Trend Internet Security) has started flagging them as suspicious files. I'm not sure what you can do about that.
  3. It was an "important" update on Windows 8.1, and I was a bit surprised that it was flagged as high priority on WES09 and POSReady 2009. They don't have the three "optional", "important" and "critical" categories that later versions of Windows have though.
  4. So it would appear.
  5. The normal way is to hover the mouse cursor on the edge of the taskbar until the cursor changes to a double arrow, and then click and drag the edge downwards. What happens if you do that?
  6. @jumper How annoying! It does seem very strange that there is no mechanism to delete old unwanted attachments here. Hopefully one of the mods can do it for you. If not I have masses of free space because I'm a sponsor, so if you PM me I can give you my e-mail address, you can send the file to me, and I can "host" it on my account if you like. Cheers, Dave.
  7. Well I don't know if I'm first, but seven updates have installed OK here with no problems noticed so far. Three were for Office, so not everyone will have had them.
  8. Let's hope that this nonsense finally ends tomorrow!
  9. Mine is the same except that the date on my roots.sst is one day later than yours, 24th July 2015 instead of 23rd July, but that's obviously of no significance as it's a year ago! I don't think this is updated all that often, and we usually get a heads up message here when it happens. I'm sure you're fine.
  10. I asked about those updates a while ago, I think everyone is still seeing them. IIRC they are something different, not a substitute for the Root Certificates which now have to be manually updated.
  11. Looking at that article, I can't see any reason why the same procedure wouldn't work on XP SP3.
  12. That's not great, as IIRC Microsoft's answer for this sort of problem is to completely uninstall all .NET versions and reinstall them all from scratch, in order, which is a very lengthy undertaking! Why can't you uninstall .NET 2.0 as a matter of interest? There is certainly an uninstall option present in Add/Remove Programs on my system.
  13. So if the yellow shield is still telling you that updates that you've already apparently successfully installed are still needing to be installed, what happens if you do a "custom" scan on the website? Does that tell you they still need to be installed too, even though they are in the installed updates list as already being successfully installed?
  14. Thanks, I have deleted my archived copies of the installation files for KB3035488 and KB2972105. All the others I have still seem to be relevant. I didn't have a file for KB2863239.
