I get updates that need to be made and they show to be updating, but they never seem to do anything.

Usually Adobe and Oracle Java stuff.

I manually updated the Abode items and that worked, but the Java manual updates seem to make no difference.

Are you stating that after installing Oracle JAVA manually followed by a full PSI rescan that PSI is still indicating that your PC is vulnerable?

Yes...when I run a scan, it still shows to be updating and the color is red (98%), but now the sys tray icon is green.....

Close PSI & then open it from the Tasktray - what result does it give?

If you look in Control Panel>add/remove how many entries have you got for JAVA(TM),JSE,JDK,JRE or JVM?

Then you are up to date: http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

Your problem has been well documented on the Forum - the PSI auto update feature is as slow as a snail to recognise what it is doing. It should correct itself given time (some might add, in frustration, a lifetime).

This also applies to free Adobe products.
