Looking at my add/remove program doing a bit of tidying up I noticed I have 3 rather large size java programs and some smaller ones I was wondering if I need all three they are......

J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 2 Mb
J2SE " " 5.0 " 5 Mb
J2SE " " 5.0 " 6 Mb
Java " " ,SE v 1.4.1_01 1.MB
Java webstart 1.82MB

it would be interesting to know if all these are really necessary as its seems an awful lots of space
Thanks
Pete

As far as I know, Yes they are a must. Having had the same thoughts as you some time ago I tried removing the older ones. They all stopped working!

You should have the latest up-date version installed:
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 10.

Go to Control Panel where you find your Java icon. Click on it go to the "Java" tab and click on update.

Click on it go to the "Java" tab = should read "click on update tab"
