I have the latest update to Java (v6.0.160.1).

I have repeated PSI's "solutions" about 3 times over now; rebooted, rescanned, re-everythinged; and Java, INSECURE, will not go away.

According to PSI my system is running at 99%. Still, something isn't right.

This is telling me one of two things: 1.Secunia isn't running right; 2.There is still a problem with Java. However, I did a Java-running-right test at their website, and they said it was running OK.

Does anyone have any suggestions here as to what is going on?

Thanks all,

seatug

If you are new to Secunia PSI , 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" .

Posting these details will help the Forum help you , if/when you have a problem .

Here is a link to Maurice Joyce's tried and tested method of dealing with Java problems :-

If you use the search facility at the top of the threads page , you may save time by helping yourself , otherwise , don't hesitate to ask .

let us know how you get on .
Anthony

PS: the latest Java update is u17

Thank you Anthony for your quick response.

On another Forum that I belong to (www.steelguitarforum.com) I was advised to check the path of the INSECURE listing.

Lo and Behold the path pointed to (D) drive, where I had saved a bunch of stuff before I upgraded to Win7.

So I simply deleted the entire Java folder, closed down Secunia, and almost immediately Secunia sent up it's alert flag and said basically that a threat had been removed and that things are now at 100% secure.
