I am currently trying to free up some space in my hard drive on my laptop (it's only 40gb)and I'm running XP SP3. I have just received the Java runtime environment 6.0 update 14, can I delete the previous updates in add or remove programs? Now that I'm running SP3, (MSXML 6.0 KB933579) can I delete MSXML 4.0 SP2 updates KB927978, KB936181, KB954430 or is it necessary to keep these. I don't want to delete anything that is vital to running the system and I've already removed programs that I don't use or need anymore.........any advice would be appreciated.
You can certainly uninstall older Java updates - I did mine some time ago, and now check them occasionally. There are several Java modules with different names - only delete older ones of each spewcific name.
