I am unable to update Sun Java JRE 1.6x/6.x--I've tried 3 times. The vulnerability is pointed out, and I can download the patch, but PSI continues to show it as "updating" over the past week or so.

Any ideas?

Have you got more than one version installed?

If so you should uninstall any old copies via Control Panel>add/remove

I have looked for Sun Java JRE 1.6x/6.x in the list of programs in my Control Panel and cannot find it.

So, if he's got 100+ workstations all with a previous java version, he would have to go to each to run the uninstall?

What path is PSI showing?

FINDING A FILE PATH USING PSI VERSION 2

From the DASHBOARD page click on SCAN RESULTS.

1. This will list all your programmes with a + to the left of each programme.
2. Click the + sign next to the item that U want help with.
3. This will reveal the path under DETECTED INSTANCES.
4. Below DETECTED INSTANCES you will see this You can double click this row for additional information & options>double click it>a box will appear>look to the RIGHT & U will see TROUBLESHOOT REPORT in BLUE writing under the heading TOOLBOX> click TroubleShoot Report & it will reveal some information in a box>highlight the information revealed from ---START--- to ---END--- & copy it (CTRL+C) then post it to the Forum (CTRL+V)

VERSION 3
This version does not have such an easy method to publish the path.

Open PSI>once open select Show Programs.
U will now see a page full of programme icons or a list.
Right click on the programme in error>select Show Details - that will open a box showing the path & version number of the offending file.
U now have 2 options:
1. Write down the exact file path & install version - return to the Forum & type that information.
2. Take a screen shot & publish that.

@brwarner

Given that PSI is for a single home use PC not sure what this means?

So, if he's got 100+ workstations all with a previous Java version, he would have to go to each to run the uninstall?

If you have a 100+ PC's with two versions of JAVA installed & want to remove one from each PC the answer is yes!
