Sun Java JRE 1.6.x / 6.x was listed twice as a threat. I downloaded the solution for the first one and ran it. It worked. And now I'm down to one. I redownloaded the solution for the second one and ran it. Then I scanned the computer again to see what happened. Nothing: Sun Java JRE 1.6.x / 6.x is still there.
What gives?

Hi Oceras;

Welcome to the Secunia forum.

When you update Java, it only removes the previous version of itself.
The current version is Sun Java JRE 1.6.x / 6.x 6.0.220.4 (from PSI patched). This is update 22.
When you downloaded/installed this, this would have removed the previous update 21, but you are still showing update 20 (i.e. 2 versions earlier than current).

Look in Add/Remove Programs (from Control Panel), where you should see:-

- Java (TM) 6 update 20
- Java (TM) 6 update 22

You can delete (highlight and click Remove) update 20

Re-boot and re-scan PSI.
