    Word Perfect Converter (Office XP)

    PC-cillin Internet Security 2006 keeps finding MS04-027 - Vulnerability in Word Perfect Converter. I'm running Office XP and do not have Word Perfect. I searched the registry and found nothing, it's not on my computer either.
    Please tell me how to stop the search for programs I do not have.

    It's reported by the Vulnerability Scanner, not the virus scanner, true? That scanner reports vendor patches that you have not installed which apply to applications on your computer. You could visit the Office Update site (http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/of...e/default.aspx) and see whether Microsoft agrees. If not, try the free tech support included in the price of your product. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Give that man a Wilkie button. Yes, it's reported by the scanner. I have gone to Windows Update & Office Update and none of the mentioned vulnerabilities are listed. I have turned of the PC-cillin update scanner, so I should not see them again.

    "Give that man a Wilkie button"?? Now there's a truly obscure expression.

    How do I know it's obscure? Because if you Google "Wilkie button," you only get 15 hits!

    Additional fun facts:
    Google hits for "Wendell Wilkie": 73,300
    Google hits for "Wendell Willkie": 32,200

    LATER CORRECTION: Oops. My bad. It's actually the double-l version that out-polls the single-l version, not vice versa. But Googling "Willkie button" only yields an additional 29 hits, so you may retain your obscure-expression-of-the-week prize.

    Why does my Google return more hits than yours?

    Because you didn't put quotes around "Willkie button", so you got every page that included both words, rather than just the pages with the exact phrase "Willkie button."
