My name is Britt, and I am norwegian.
I have received 6 messages that the program "Sun Java JRE 1.6.x / 6.x" represent a risk to my computer. Every time I use the recommended solution, I am asked if I`d like to reinstall the program, because it is already installed. I have reinstalled it, anyway, but the 6 "risk-messages" are still there after rescanning the system..

Can anyone help me, please?

This has been a recurering issue for several weeks now. Reinstallations has no effect. Ay this point I'm ignoring the Flag.

Hi all

The 2nd post in this thread, by Maurice Joyce, clears
up 99.9% of Java(tm) problems.

I suggest you give it a thorough 'read' & act accordingly.

Hope this helps.

I had the same thing happen today. I had four threats for Sun Java JRE 1.6x / 6x. All four were identical. I applied the solution and three of them disappeared, but the fourth one remains. Tried to run the solution again, but to no avail. Have no idea how to get rid of the fourth one, but assume that it is no longer a threat since the other three have been removed.
