On 26 March, 2009, the 13th update of JRE 1.6.x/6.x release prompted Secunia PSI to pop the warning to remind me of applying solution (update). I tried updating through clicking onto "solution" within Secunia window as well as downloading from Sun's website, without success. I could download the .exe file from both the places, but execution stops in a couple of seconds and nothing happens. On Sun website.... when I check the version, it say that I have update 11 and need updating... I don't understand why it is not updating? Secondly, today, I saw another warning, this time for JRE 1.5.x/5.x and it does not do anything. Any help would be appreciated.

|Unfortunately when updating a program the update(patch) doesn't always delete or overwrite the old files. This is a known issue with Java.
To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, please follow these guidelines using the
* Click on the entry of the program to expand it.
* Click on Technical details to see the installation path of the detected file.
* Remember the installation path and close down the menu.
* Click Open Folder and locate the detected file.
You can then manually delete these remnants-reboot-rescan & hopefully all is well. There's also a free utility available that I've not personally used but have seen a lot of good comments about on this forum.
http://raproducts.org It supposedly removes all the old files for you.
Good luck & regards, wr

|I tried the javara download and while it claimed to have deleted all old files, it did not. So, I used the tech folder in Secunia for the path where these threats were located and then did a search for each of them on the C drive. After considerable time, I finally got rid of all of the "insecure" and "end of life" issues.|
