JAVA Version 6 Now Available
Java Version 6 is now available. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version of Java components and upgrade the application. Beware it is NOT supported for use in 9x or ME and probably will not install in those systems



Ugrading Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.
  • Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java version.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.

Whats crazy is that they just released version 10.

@ JSntgRvr: I only see Multi-language installation. Maybe they will change this soon.

Just incase anybody is interested it adds these lines:

O2 - BHO: SSVHelper Class - {761497BB-D6F0-462C-B6EB-D4DAF1D92D43} - C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0\bin\ssv.dll
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0\bin\jusched.exe"
O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {08B0E5C0-4FCB-11CF-AAA5-00401C608501} - C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0\bin\npjpi160.dll
O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Sun Java Console - {08B0E5C0-4FCB-11CF-AAA5-00401C608501} - C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0\bin\npjpi160.dll

MMJ:

You can uncheck and disable this startup entry:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0\bin\jusched.exe"

in the MSCONFIG "Startup" tab.

You can select and fix these log entries:

O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {08B0E5C0-4FCB-11CF-AAA5-00401C608501} - C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0\bin\npjpi160.dll

O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Sun Java Console - {08B0E5C0-4FCB-11CF-AAA5-00401C608501} - C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0\bin\npjpi160.dll


because they're not needed in the Internet Explorer tools sub-menu.

Version 1.6.0 (beta) has been out for awhile.

Version 1.6.0 (final) was released yesterday.

After uninstalling all older versions of JRE or J2RE from the Add/Remove Programs list, go into the C:\Program Files\Java folder and delete any leftover folders that belong to older versions. They sometimes remain there after the older versions have been uninstalled.

Flavallee, I have installed Java version 6. All seems well. And following your last post, I went to my Java folder in programs. Along, with version 6 there is another small folder, J2RE1.4.2 03. It would appear to be something left over after I had uninstalled older Java versions. Is this the type thing you were alluding to in your last post as needing to be deleted?

Thanks,
Red Boy

Look at the date of the J2RE1.4.2 03 file to see when it was installed because it may of been just installed so you can see other older java.

Thanks, Hewee. Good point. I hadn't thought about that. It shows that file was created January 13, 2006. That was just about the time I bought this Dell laptop. What do you think?

Delete all folders from inside the C:\PROGRAM FILES\JAVA folder, except for the folder for the newest version.

Make sure that you did uninstall/remove version 1.4.2.03 from the Add/Remove Programs list before you delete that folder.

Here is a screenshot of my C:\PROGRAM FILES\JAVA folder:

Thanks, Flavallee. Upon deleting folder 1.4.2.03 my Java folder will look exactly like yours. And I have double checked my Add/Remove Programs list. The only version there is version 6, no other. Folder 1.4.2.03 is only 455 KB. It must be, as you have indicated, some residue from a previous version.

Thanks again,
Red Boy
