any advice?
I have both J2SE runtime environment 5.0 update7 and Java ™ 6 update2 on my computer. That's a lot of Mb's for occasional use and I could do with the memory! Online I tend to stream video and music from the BBC, uTube, and various short film, video and music sites (google, student films, D&BArena, etc...), but don't download music, etc online. How do these applications work? Do they do the same thing or work in different ways? Can I remove one of them without losing visual capability when viewing online?

Remove all versions except the last one. I used windows cleanup installer for doing this.

I'm not sure why JRE installations dont uninstall previous versions automatically, but zbd makes a good point - there really should be only one version installed at any one time, and the latest is the most secure.
