On my ADD/REMOVE Screen, I can see almost 1GB of JAVA Updates which are something like

JAVA(TM) 6 Update 2, 3, 5, 7, 15 etc

as well as

J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6,9 and 11.

Can these be safely removed ?

Your prompt response would be appreciated.

You only need the most recent (which is version 6 update 17). Updates don't overwrite the previous versions so you can
end up, as you have, with multiple versions installed.

If I were you I'd uninstall all of them, then download & install the current version ..... http://www.java.com/en/
