    I was looking around my PC - internet prop, settings, view objects and found many DL program files. Some are listed more than once installed, same day and version; some status unknown; some total size '0'. Surely some can be deleted - if not all - but?? Surprised the control panels add-remove does not show these programs to be installed??Esp Java runtime enviroment? Where do these programs originate from?? I know the Java program I am running is 1.5.0. updated to 6 but it does not show in this file. Even found some Symantec Script Runner Class and RuFSI Utilit Class files installed created 6/06 but I deleted all AV system a long time ago??

    Not all applications when installed are added to Add/Remove Programs.

    If you found the .DLLs in the C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files folder you can delete them.

    Java runtime runs within a browser's session so you will not see it in Add/Remove.
