Sorry if I'm posting in the incorrect area,but I installed google gears a while back to see if it did me any good.
Long story short, I ended up removing it but it still shows up as "end of life" in the scan.
Not to mention it tells me my java is also out of date, but yet when I check it out,its up to date. Does Secunia intend on fixing their program or do I remove it from my pc?
I bust my ass to make sure my pc is up to date, I don't need a program giving me false positives.

Google Gears is in use in conjunction with Chrome.. When updated, as with lots of other progs, old files/versions are left behind...Secunia still detects them even if still in the Recycle Bin. I have read that after a period of time they are automatically removed, but generally I don't wait that long.
There are various threads concerning Java on the forum....you might try looking for any by Maurice Joyce on the subject. Selecting Programs and filling in the relevant spaces will take you to threads already written about. It's worth taking some time to do a bit of reading before doing any condemnation. If Secunia has detected it....it's there....is a better rule.
Are you using PSI with the Advanced interface ? You will gain more info if you switch. Click on the + sign alongside an entry in Patched/End of Life/Insecure, and it will expand to reveal the file path. Click on Tech Details and that will confirm it.
If you are uncertain as to how to proceed from there, post the info to the forum to gain more assistance. Regards

PS My fault perhaps....you've posted to the CSI forum. I've replied assuming you were using PSI.....I'm waiting for a prescription for new glasses ! Ha!

When I originally installed Google Gears, I did not have Google Chrome.
When I delete anything, I also empty the recyle bin by using CCleaner.
This is not a new problem, I just got tired of it repeating time & time again.
I was previously using the filehippo updater but for unknown reasons,it quit functioning.
If Secunia PSI don't stop showing what I consider false positives, I will uninstall it,too.
I don't like any program telling me I need to update a program when I know I have the latest.
I may not be a pc techie, but I'm not ignorant,either. Thanks for your help.

I'm not particularly techie either.....but I think you are being maybe overly stubborn. You have posted this thread to the CSI forum and not the PSI. You might try posting there.
You seem to be missing the point that I was making.....Secunia tells you what it finds....the choice is yours as with regard to how/what you update. Having updated....old files/versions may be still on your computer.....psi shows you them as vulnerabilities. The idea is to clear them out and gain a clean bill of health....for free !!!
