I have just started using this online software inspector, which is very good to have...although I have a problem when it says Java needs updating, and has a link for an update...then I go there and it says that my Sun Java JRE is up to date. This is very strange. It did this for both Firefox and IE. Also it said that my Macromedia Flash needs updating, and it is now owned by Adobe. I cannot find the files to delete them, and just update Adobe Flash Player. Any thoughts on this?

I have had that same issue in all 3 versions I have tried. I have not found a fix. So I just added java to the ignore list and do it manually.

Maybe someone else has found a fix. I have not.

I know its not a perfect solution but I have had this problem before and used http://www.filehippo.com/updatechecker/ to update flash to the latest.

The Java problem is most likely because there is an element of a previous JRE left behind. JavaRa should identify all superfluous JRE files and remove them. http://raproducts.org/

It found ten updates that needed to be done. It said some stuff that the other scanner did not. I am gonna install them later today, I have to leave the house for now. Looks like a great program.

While the file hippo updater is a great tool, its catalogue of products is very limited.

I have just started using Secunia PSI as it seems to be more comprehensive than FileHippo and on the first scan I got a 98% rating the 2% being it telling me my version of Java is v1.5. I know that I have the latest version of Java ie v1.7 as I installed it myself but the Java mentioned in the report is from a game I play called Football Manager 2008 from SI Games and this game has Java installed as a part of the game. I am wondering if this is what Secunia is picking up on?.

None of these programs are perfect I suppose. FileHippo told me everytime I scanned that a new driver v8.5 was available for my ATI Graphics installation but the final update for the card that I have onboard was v6.11 and the v8.5 one is for Graphic Cards that came out after mine.
