What path is PSI showing to JAVA JRE file that is vulnerable and trying to update?

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.

Oh, by the way, is there any way to kill sua.exe for good, when I am not using PSI?

Open PSI>once open select Show Programs.

U will now see a page full of programme icons or a list.

Right click on the icon that represents the programme in error>select Show Details - that will open a box showing the path & version number of the offending file.

Double click on C:\Programs\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe 6.0.310.5

That will open Windows Explorer & U will see that file. Right click on it & select delete.

Now do exactly the same for C:\Programs\Java\jre1.6.0_22\bin\java.exe 6.0.220.4

Run a full PSI scan & the problem should be resolved.

SUA

Open PSI>settings - select your preferences. You can use PSI manually - just untick the Start at boot box.

I have deleted some of it now. But I have read on the internet, that it is risky to delete jre6, yet.

So, so far I have just disabled Java6, and then I will see if I can do without it, and then later delete it.

Does that sound like a good plan?

So now I have two maps when I go to Start<this computer<Acer(C:)<programs<java<

jre6 and jre7


I would like to update jre6 to the latest version of Java6, but how do I do that?

Or should I just delete jre6? Some say though, that I might need it on some sites.

Thanks a lot for your help :)

All the information you require is on the JAVA website.

Version 6 info:
http://java.com/en/download/faq/java_6.xml

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/archive-139...

Uninstalling older version advice:
http://java.com/en/download/faq/remove_olderversio...

You may also like to use the advisory notice given by Secunia on this older version in carrying out your Risk Assessment:

https://secunia.com/advisories/product/12878/


You can disable SUA via Services - this may well lead to PSI becoming unstable so be prepared to reinstate the service if you want to tinker.
