Tonight 14th June Secunia told me I had a concern with Java and no matter what I tried the concern would not go away.
Some time back I remember Maurice giving me some advice about programs like that.
I went in to Add & Remove and removed two Java programs
I knew what Java I had to install (thanks to Secunia) I found it via Google.
That program directed me to the correct download.
I "Ran" it followed all instructions, re started the computer gave it the OK.
Same thing when I turned on Internet Explorer.
I ran Update Checker all OK.
I ran Secunia all OK
Thank you Maurice for all your help in the past

|Pleased to see U are OK.
Oracle are very clear that only the current version should be installed by those requiring JAVA as follows:
Should I uninstall older versions of Java?
We highly recommend users uninstall all older versions of Java from your system.
Keeping old and unsupported versions of Java on your system presents a serious security risk.
Uninstalling older versions of Java from your system ensures that Java applications will run with the most up-to-date security and performance improvements on your system.
This little snippet might also help regarding JAVA & other security issues.
Brian Krebs is well known in security circles. If U want keeping up to date particularly with regards to Adobe "freebies" (Flash - AIR - Shockwave - Reader for example), Microsoft or Oracle JAVA then U can sign up.
This is his submission for "Microsoft Patch Tuesday" for this month which I received before Microsoft released the updates.
They are all "easy reads" with comments sections if required.
If U read the articles U will note many hyperlinks which have helpful information & download links.
If interested U will see the RSS Feed button (top right) if U use feeds or can subscribe by email (right hand side - may need to scroll a bit).
Hope this helps.
