Okay, that output looks like it is still from 4.85BETA6. It is possible
that you have the BETA7 of Zenmap installed but only the BETA6 of Nmap.
Try running
   nmap --version
You should be able to do that within Zenmap. If it says something before
4.85BETA7, then you will have to find where the old version is installed
and remove it.

I did that, both in zenmap and via a command prompt, just to be sure, and
both respond with "Nmap version 4.85BETA7".

However, the change was made to a script, is there a way to tell the
"version" of a script?

Scripts don't have individual version numbers, but you can open the
script in a text editor and look for the presence of a
CONFICKER_ERROR_HELP table. If all else fails, download the script from
http://nmap.org/nsedoc/scripts/smb-check-vulns.html and install it over
your current script.

My script did have the help table, but I downloaded the one from the URL
anyway; however, I get the same results as before.

Thanks for your patience. This error is my fault. I made a mistake in
the error-checking code, by not handling an error from all the possible
sources. I also made a mistake in testing the script, which is why it
appeared to be working for me. I'm sorry to have taken you through this
long discussion before realizing it. The upshot of all this is that the
error messages announced in the CHANGELOG don't work at all.

I committed a fix in r12864. Would you get the latest version from
http://nmap.org/nsedoc/scripts/smb-check-vulns.html and see if the
output changes?
