OK Lofty ,

It is getting late here for me on CET so let me post some "tips" on using the PSI and see how they help , anything you cannot deal with post the pertinent info back here , where there are plenty of helpers .

Here you go :-

The key to finding the cause of your problem(s) is to get the "installation path" (step 5 below) and then locate and open the folder causing the problem using the "open folder" link in the "toolbox" (step seven below).

So : To locate the old version files of Java , here is some advice for using the PSI in "advanced" mode , it is not difficult to use and will help you greatly :-

You need to get the information using the advanced mode of the PSI - use the link in the top right corner of any PSI page .

It would be a shame not to try the "advanced" mode ; so here are some tips for "looking around" :-

Click on each/all the tabs and there is plenty of written advice about what each tab contains .

If a "problem" shows in the "insecure" or "end of life" tabs , then to help resolve any 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 .

With Java you may see the old version listed in "add/remove" of the control panel for easy delete .

Let us know what you find and how you go .

Take care

Anthony

Thank you all for the info

I went into "add and remove" and there were 2 Java updates (20+21), i deleted 20, then into secunia scan and was still getting the same problem, i then went on advance and clicked on one of the suggestions, which took me into programes and i just deleted the:

C:Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_04\Bin\Java.exe

after deleting this, i ran another secunia scan and the application had gone and now i am running 100%

Again

Thank you all very much, your time was appreciated


Regards


Lofty
