If U have definitely updated to JAVA(TM)7 Update 5 then do this to remove the old version exe file:


1. Open PSI>Scan results.

2. Against the programme marked as vulnerable is a + sign to the left of it.

3. Click that & it will reveal DETECTED INSTANCES.

4. Below that are two yellow folders. Click the one WITHOUT a red dot.

5. That will open Windows Explorer & U will be able to see the vulnerable file.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe, version:

6. Right click on that file & select delete.

7. Carry out a full PSI scan & all should be in order.

If for some reason that does not clear it do this:

Go to Control Panel>add/remove (Program & Features).

Uninstall ALL versions of JRE or JSE or JDK or JVM or JAVA(TM):

Download the latest version from here if U really require JAVA.

U can test it is working correctly here:

Complete another full PSI rescan.
