Java update 6, 11 is now available. Get that and if v 6, 7 or 10 are still showing in Add / Remove programs uninstall them.

It's advised to Uninstall an earlier version(s) first before downloading and installing the new updated version.

I got prompted to install a new version. All went well, I didn't uninstall the old -- never have done, just followed the instructions.
Two things though. First, on the "get more info" tab that I clicked before actually installing, it specifically DID NOT mention any versions of Vista that the update appied to. It was all X.P. and older. I ran the "check which version you have" tool and that confirmed that I should update. Not good though ! Did a full back up just in case.
Second, after having installed it, a thank you box popped up thanking me for being a beta tester of the previous version. I have never knowingly installed a beta version !!! Only updates when prompted.

Old Java updates can be extremely reluctant to go using Add/Remove Programs - but the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility should remove them with ease

They will just build up unnecessarily on your system....
