Delete SE V1.4.2 and ensure that you have the latest version of Java 6 (Update 3).

Can you tell me how I make sure I have the latest version of java 6 please?Thanks.

It's not letting me delete SE V1.4.2 anyway.It's prompting me to insert the installation package which I don't have.Thanks.

when you say delete it,do you mean when uninstalling from add/remve programs?
To be honest i havent even bothered installing java,if a website needs it,you ill be asked to install it.

Yeah I meant uninstall it.I just noticed that I had 2 different versions of java installed.I tried to uninstall one via add/remove programs but it won't let me.AS long as it won't cause any problems having both I'll just leave them alone.Thanks.
