PSI has been showing that there's an update scheduled for Sun Java JRE 1.6.x/6.x. It has shown this since earlier Sunday and it is now 1:38 AM on Monday and it's still showing the same thing. When does it actually go ahead and update?

There have been a few instances reported with the latest JAVA update. Maybe in this instance quicker to use the old method.

JAVA PROBLEMS
Can be used with Windows XP,Vista & Windows 7 - 32 & 64 Bit Systems.

Go to Control Panel>add/remove.

Uninstall ALL versions of JRE or JSE or JDK or JVM or JAVA(TM) EXCEPT for JAVA(TM) 6 Update 24.

Now do a full PSI rescan & all should be in order.

Windows does not require JAVA to be installed to work therefore if U make a error & uninstall the lot it does not matter.

U can download the latest version from here if U really require JAVA.

U can test it is working correctly here:

Hello.
In my case, running a scan triggered the update. After some recent reading tho', I decided to remove Java altogether and see how I got on ! So far so good !
Regards,

I myself really do need Java because my providers Webmail needs it. As to my experience Java isn't complicated to update at all. I also keep track of Java on two remote supported pc's, one with Vista and one with XP Home an never got in trouble with updates.

Good morning Leendert !
If you have a need/dependance, that's that. I was referring to reading which pointed out that even the latest patches don't close vulnerabilities but seem to open up others. It seemed to me to be ludicrous to keep it, if I could manage without it.
If you look at CClip 88 this month you'll see a post regarding.
Have a good day.......regards,

Thanks to Maurice, as always. Thanks also to others who posted. I didn't have any trouble updating through the usual means. I just switched to the new version of PSI and was wondering why it showed an update was scheduled but then never went ahead with it.

Have a good day all!
