Secunia repeatedly says this is a security risk, yet it is the latest update. The risk is not removed by scanning. What do I do next?

Try uninstalling Java and then delete the Java folders from C:\Program Files\Java and from C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Sun. Then reinstall Java and re-scan with PSI. Hope that works for you.

I too had the same problem - repeatedly downloaded latest JAVA and still had threat indicated. I uninstalled JAVA and that cleared the threat. thank you.

Thanks very much, I did try to delete Java but was not able to do so, and should have uninstalled it. It has now disappeared from Secunia.

If U have not got the latest version of JAVA (Version 6 Update 15) download it from here:
http://www.java.com/en/

Once the update is complete go to Control Panel>JAVA icon>Update Tab and take the tick out of box marked "Check for updates auto ....." (This will prevent a an unnecessary file from starting each time U switch on your PC - PSI is already doing this job for U)


Now remove all the old dross from previous versions.

The tool will remove all old versions, any useless files from previous installs except for the version U have just installed

http://raproducts.org/

*This link takes U to the site - select the Windows Binary (zip) option.
*This will lead U to Sourceforge.net to download it.
*Save the download to desktop.
*Activate the desktop zip icon which exposes the JAVARA EXE file. Click it
*Select RUN when asked.
*Select your language.
*The tool will now appear on the desktop - select REMOVE OLDER VERSIONS
*Once complete select ADDITIONAL TASKS - tick all boxes & activate.


* Right click on the desktop JAVARA zip file & delete it.

Future Updates Of JAVA.

Once all the old JAVA dross is removed future updating is easy.

Go to Start>Control Panel>click on the JAVA icon>select the Update tab>click the Update Now button.

Once the update is complete go to Control Panel>JAVA icon>Update Tab and take the tick out of box marked "Check for updates auto ....." (This will prevent a an unnecessary file from starting each time U switch on your PC - PSI is already doing this job for U)


Run PSI & all aspects should register as secure.
