For months now I've noticed PSI telling me I have a vulnerability in a Java Update V.6 - (usually Update 20) and when I download the Patch ALWAYS says "This software has already been installed on your computer. Do you want to re-install it?" Usually I say yes and it just re-installs it. Then PSI will say its patched, (scans clean); then a few days/weeks later the SAME exact update -Java 6 update 20 - will show up again as a vulnerability. This happens on both laptops, one running Vista & one running 7 (both have Secunia PSI, obviously).Does anyone else have this problem? And does anyone know if I'm doing something wrong or of a solution?
