Java JRE update stalls wile verifying. This happened a couple of weeks ago. It went hours and hours without result, until I gave up. I tried it again today, and it is stalling again.

What has to be done for Secunia's updater to work?

c:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe 7.0.150.3

ca;\windows.old\Program Files\java\jre7\bin\java.exe 7.0.70.10

After some hours being stalled, the message in PSI window has now changed to "Click to update". Oracle Java JRE 1.7x/7.x.

What gives?

This appears to be an ongoing saga with long delays when updating using the Secunia auto update SPS system.

I would just do it manually using this link:

The manual update appears to have worked.

I guess it remains to be seen if widespread fears about JRE vulnerabilites have been solved.

Thank you
