    Hi

    I'm trying to clean up some spaces in my hard drive and when i went to the control panel, I saw couple Java TM updates. My question is which one do i really need? I've got Java(TM) 6 Update 7, Java(TM) 6 Update 10, and Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 6.


    Thanks

    You can get rid of the Adobe entries in bold type.

    If you don't use Microsoft Works, you can get rid of it too.

    Microsoft Silverlight is required by some websites just like Adobe Flash Player is so that you can view all the multimedia content in them, so leave it alone.

    Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 likely got installed as part of another program that got installed, so leave it alone.
