Secunia keeps telling me that I need to update. I looked for older versions on my computer but didn't find any. I even used the Java online tool and scanned for older versions. It said that no older versions were found and that I was up to date with Version 7 Update 25. Here is a copy of the troubleshooting report:

---START---

Sun Java JRE 1.6.x / 6.x

Last System Scan (localtime):

Please help.

Just manually delete the vulnerable file.

DELETING A FILE OR FOLDER

VERSION 2


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\jre6\bin\java.exe, version: 6.0.450.6

6. Right click on that file & select delete.

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

When I clicked on the file, it opened a popup box inside Secunia that says Quick facts about Sun Java JRE 1.6.x/6.x and then gives some info on that Java.

Click on what file? You are using PSI version 2. Just follow the script I have published which does not mention anywhere that you click on a file except a right click to delete it.
