A Secunia scan revealed that my computer has Sun Java JRE 1.6x/6.x. Yet no solution was given as to how this threat/vulnerability can be eliminated. Anyone have the same problem? How did you remedy it??

It seems you are using your Email address for your screen name , a sure recipe for spam hell on a public Forum ; you can change it in the "secunia profile"** tab of PSI if you decide to so do .

If you arenew to PSI , here are some tips for using PSI "advanced" mode :-

To help resolve your problem , here are some instructions to help you first of all get the best out of PSI :-

1)use PSI in "advanced" mode ;
2)in the "settings" tab make sure that the box in the first/upper section is NOT ticked in order to have the maximum info available ;
3)tell us in which "tab(s)" your problem programme is located ;
4)in that tab , click on the + in the box at the left end of the programme , the page will expand ;
5)in the expanded page , tell us what is written in the "installation path" ;
6)in the "toolbox" section , lower down , the link "technical details" should confirm the installation path details ;
7)click on the link "open folder" and you will see more details concerning the location of the "problem" .

If you are unable to resolve the problem yourself , all this info should allow someone on the forum to help/advise you .

FYI , your thread is surrounded by others with the same problem and the excellent solution from Maurice Joyce is there/here , for example :-

Let us know your progress.
Take care
