I recently decided to have a clear out of little used programs on my PC. On looking in the 'Add or Remove' programs list I see there are numerous entries for Java. Could anyone please advise me as to which of the following items I could safely remove. I presume only the last three entries are required. As can be seen, they take up a lot of space on my hard drive.
Here is the full list in correct order.
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 10 Size 145MB
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 11 Size 146MB
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 5 Size 144MB
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6 Size 144MB
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 9 Size 145MB
Java 2 Runtime Environment SE v1.4.2_06 Size 130MB
Java (TM) 6 Update 2 Size 133MB
Java (TM) SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 1 Size 159MB
The most current version of Sun Java is: Java Runtime Environment Version 6u2.
Using Internet Explorer, 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
Sorry for the delay in responding, I've been away for a few days. Thanks for your suggestion which I've only just seen. I did consider uninstalling all of the entries and starting again. However, I uninstalled all but the latest update and all appears well. I now think I will follow your advice and start with a fresh installation.
Once again, thank you.
