My Secunia section for "Programs that need updating (3)" has 3 items that have been "stuck" there for several months.

They Are:
Adobe AIR 3.x
Adobe Flash Player 11.x (ActiveX)
Oracle Java JDK 1.6.x / 6.x 64-bit

I would appreciate some direction as to how to get these fully updated, and out the "stuck" status that they are in.

Thank you!

What path is PSI showing to the Adobe AIR & Flash Player files that is vulnerable and trying to update?



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)

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.


Go to Control Panel>add/remove.

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

Now do a full PSI rescan & all should be in order in that JAVA will not show up.

U can download the latest version from here if U really require JAVA.

U can verify your JAVA install here:
