Secunia says I need to update "Sun Java JRE 1.6.x/6.x" I've tried several times, but each time, when it's almost done, the Sun installer fails with the error code 2753 on regutils.dll. I've tried clicking on the forum button on Secunia, to absolutely no effect. Sun's help page is no help.

This link/webpage will tell you what the file is and where it is located :-

http://www.what-is-exe.com/filenames/regutils-dll....

Which version of the PSI are you using on which OS ??

Is the PSI showing the same installation path ?? If so can you navigate to the folder/file ??

You should be able to right click and delete the fiie .

If you go to Add/Remove are there any Sun Java JRE , JDK or other programmes listed , the only one you need is Java (TM) 6 update 22 which you can get here :-

http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

If you are not sure of something , post back . Post anyway and let us know how you go .

There's some discussion of this problem here:
http://forums.sun.com/thread.jspa?threadID=5331236

People seem to have had varying degrees of success in dealing with this error; but it looks like your best chance is to use the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility to remove references to Java except update 22.

The Cleanup Utility can be downloaded from
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Secure-clean...

This site contains numerous adverts with Download buttons on them. Be sure to pick the correct one (Add to Download Basket) and select Download Location on the next page.

Hi again ,

Thanks for the input ddm , an old "majorgeeks forum" recommends Revo for the job as well ; a back up , perhaps , if the Windows software doesn't work :-

My Secinia shows I must update 6 of these "Sun Java JRE 1.6x/6.x - slightly
impossible when I try it - it is 6 similar programs and it asks whether to overwrite.
But nothing helps, you run the scan again once the problem is the same. The names are all the same at 6 Secunia suggest me.
My online safety are less eog less.

Anyone have a really good advice to me ...?

Please pylleb

Hello @ pylleb ,

You are highjacking a thread with a different problem to your's ; plus you have double posted ; click "reply" once and WAIT for the upload to finish . Look at the left side column on this page and create your own thread and repost your problem there . You will get plenty of help . Do not come back here .

I was about to add that "Unlocker" software recently recommended by Fred may be another option :-

Watch out not to agree to the ebay added stuff , unless you really want it .
