Java Updates

  JamieC 18:38 19 Jul 2007

Hello all,

I'm running XP and in the programs list (in control panel Add/Remove Programs), I find Java Update 1, Java Update 6, Java Update 9 and Java Update 10. Each one is around 120mb. Could I delete updates 1, 6 and 9 to save space on my hard drive or would that ruin Java?

Thanks, JC

The most current version of Sun Java is Java Runtime Environment Version 6u2. You should uninstall all old versions.

Go to click here
Click on the link named Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u2
Click on the radio button to Accept License Agreement
Click on Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language and save the downloaded file to your hard disk
Go to Start => Control Panel => Add or Remove Programs
Uninstall all old versions of Java (Java 2 Runtime Environment, JRE or JSE)
Reboot your computer
Delete the folder C:\Program Files\Java if present
Install the new version by running the newly-downloaded file, and follow the on-screen instructions.
Reboot your computer
