Ran installation of Java update 7u75 today from Secuina app after the weekly scan of my system. The update downloaded but now the Secunia window says "Waiting for update to complete" and it's been that way for hours.

I have rescanned the program and also tried reinstalling it. Restarted my Windows Vista PC. Secunia still reports "waiting for update to complete."

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Hi ,

Java is one of the programmes the PSI often fails to "auto-update" correctly ; I never use the PSI option but go to the Oracle website and update directly from there .

You can also use the programme's built in update option found in the Java console - cannot give you the exact location as I do not have Java installed on my system atm .

Take care

Anthony

The situation has not changed. I have attemted to update Java numerous times. It used to be stuck on "Waiting for update to complete." Now it says "Determining Auto-Update state" and has been that way for days. It's the only program that isn't updated and my Secunia score is 99% but the icon in the sys tray is RED and shows 0% secure.
