After downloading patches and rescanning, I still have Picasa 2x and Sun Java 1.5. I cannot find these two at Add/Remove. How do I get rid of them?

Hello.
What version psi are you using ? What is your Operating System ?
What is the file path to the vulnerability ?
Click on the +sign alongside an entry and it will expand to reveal the file path.....click on Tech Details and you will see confirmation of it. Post that info back to the forum if uncertain how to proceed.
Hope this helps....regards,

Sorry, I clicked too soon. I have a Lenova laptop running XP Pro. My Secunia version is psi 1.5.02. I could not find a + by the listings but was able to get the following: Program Files\Picasa2\Picasa2\exe and Program Files\Jave\jre1.5.0_06\bin\Java.exe. I went to Java from Control Panel and unchecked the above version and rescanned. I was told that there were no threats but the above two are still listed.

I think we may be a little at cross purposes here.
All the programs listed in psi 1.5.0.2 have a + sign alongside them.
Are you using psi with the Advanced interface ? If not; switch to it....top right of the psi panel, to gain more information.
If you go to the Insecure or End of Life tabs in psi ; you'll see those entries for versions/files Secunia has detected as being such. Clicking on the + sign will expand the entry to reveal the file path....another click on Tech Details will confirm it.
It seems that you have picked out the info from somewhere else ( Add/Remove ? ) yourself...rather than quote the results from the scan.
In this instance, regarding Java; if you go to Add/Remove and delete all Java entries other than/except JAVA (TM) 6 Update 22 you should be okay.
With regard to Picasa; please see the following thread, and the post by TiMow which should help you:-
http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/626...
Basically, tho' you update progs, the older versions are often left behind, and these psi continues to detect...even if still in the Recycle bin.
After having removed/updated...it is also often adviseable to reboot before re-scanning for the info to register.

HOW IT WORKS
Hope this helps......regards,
