Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) complains that Microsoft Powerpoint 2010 is Insecure.
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\POWERPNT.EXE
Secunia was reporting a different version than what PowerPoint 2010 had.
Help in PPT says that the Version is 14.0.5128.5000

Microsoft Update keeps bringing up "Security Update for Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 (KB2464594), but fails every time you install it.
Code 80070643 Windows Update encountered an unknown error

The machine has PowerPoint 2010 installed, so I don't know why it brings up 2007.
I go to Control Panel -> Programs -> Uninstall a program and see
Microsoft Office 2007 Primary Interop Assemblies
                - I look up this program and determine that it is not needed.
                - I remove this program. Re-scan PSI. PowerPoint no longer shows up insecure.
