On a fresh OS install of XP Home, Secunia cannot Scan or Re-scan the Java program to confirm the removal of Java 1.5, which is deleted by RevoUninstaller. It also cannot copy/past the info between Start and End that was supposed to be pasted into this post.
It also malfunctioned in matters of login. It was really quirky here. Corrupted download of Secunia?
For such a previously marvelous app, it sure seems amateurish right now!
And my Signature that I can't even get to Edit, has underscores above it?

How are U trying to copy & paste? If using the mouse it will not because it is text based.

Have U tried the traditional way by highlighting the text CTRL+C to copy then CTRL+V to paste.

Since your very prompt Reply, I tried again to Copy the Ctrl/C way to be sure. Nada!
I'm going to uninstall using RevoUninstaller that I find more thorough than Add/ Remove in MS. It may just be a corrupted download. It happens.

I Reinstalled , Restarted the 'Puter, and got an error message in trying to switch back to the Dashboard. I Restarted again to accommodate a fresh MS Update. Of course, on the 1st Scan on the Reinstall it didn't find any Insecure, as I'd already deleted Java 1.5. Which the last Copy of Secunia couldn't handle. Which I wrote about above.
Now, it's telling me that I'm missing Service Pack 3!
Service Pack 3 shows up as installed in Ctrl Panel/System, RevoUninstaller, Add/Remove Programs, Belarc Advisor, etc. It's registered all over my 'Puter.
MS Update would tell me if it was missing! It's not.
I'm tempted to the conclusion that this Update of Secunia is just not ready for public consumption. At least mine. And with such a brilliant app. O for shame!

I forgot something. The 1st copy of Secunia PSI indicated that my Java was out of date. Now, on my fresh OS install, I know enough to have only Java 6.23 on it.
I thought that's odd, it doesn't look right...but I'll try Secunia's Update suggestion anyway. And would you believe it? That's how old Java 6.22 and also 1.5 got installed on my Computer.
The 6.22 was the 'new' update, but actually old and a no, no. So Secunia had no problem with this old Java it 'Updated' on my Computer. It only had a problem in flagging and rescanning the already uninstalled End of life Java 1.5, talked about above.
Given the litany of glitches I've chronicled above, in two separate Copies of Secunia on my fresh XP Home install, it makes me wonder just what gives here.
But, one by one these bugs will be worked out, I trust, in what otherwise has been an excellent app.

Hi PreachJohn

Actually Java(tm) 6.0.22 is secure, PSI is a vulnerability
checker not a general updater, so the latest secure version is update 22 not 23 as per Oracle "Bug Fixes

Java SE 6u23 does not contain any additional fixes for security vulnerabilities to its previous release, Java SE 6u22. Users who have Java SE 6u22 have the latest security fixes and do not need to upgrade to this release to be current on security fixes.

For other bug fixes, see the Java SE 6u23 Bug Fixes page."

I have update 22 installed & the PSI scan shows it in the Patched tab. Also the quote from Oracle about v22 vs. v23
was placed here using CtrlC & CtrlV it works.

You may wish to use the Search feature & read the
literally hundreds of posts concerning your specific problems, i.e.
Windoze XP & PSI. As with any successful 'growing & improving' service there are going to be 'bugs' & disappointments. But hang in there, Secunia wants to know
about these problems so they can improve their product.

I'm not trying to hijack your thread but noticed the time
difference & guessed that Maurice was done for the night.
I just happened to have a insomnia moment & stopped
by to comment. I'll leave you in Maurices' capable care
& bid you a goodnight.

regards, wr

EDIT: You cannot scan a program after it's removal-the procedure would be to reboot after removal to clear out
any leftover dross & then do a full system scan.

Truly appreciate your pithy post.
Here's where I'm coming from. Not argumentative, but dialogue.
The Oracle Java Site itself offers a Java Checker. It's their baby! They hold that 6.23 is the latest, and is backward compatible. They say all earlier should be removed from Computer. That's what I followed.
Now, when Secunia PSI offered the Update, 1.5 also came down with 6.22. Surely I don't need that one.
Anyway, chipping away, little by little, day by day. We'll get there.

Following what you said I replaced Java 6.23 with 6.22. Still can't copy either way in troubleshooting window.

Hi,

Are you running the IE9 Beta? If so, please be aware that this version is currectly not supported, and there are several issues we cannot do anything about until after IE9 is out of beta.

Have you tried walking through the steps outlined in this item of our FAQ?
http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal...

Has this resolved the problem?
