Help Please,

I would like to update Java. I deleted Java 2 RunTime Env, SE v1.4.

In removing older versions of Java, do I delete Java™ 6 update 3 contained in ADD or Remove Programs, keep it or delete it???

What Java do I keep as there still remains Java Control Panel in the Control Panel folder. Do I delete that as well before I download the latest version of Java SE Runtime Environment JRE 6 Update 17???

Not sure what Java to keep or delete before downloading the latest Java version.

Thanks,
q11

Delete everything currently in Add/Remove Programs...then download/install from http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp.

Many thanks hamluis!

Your advice please. The computer will not restore to any past restore dates. I've tried several RS points in both Normal & Safe Modes. The RS goes thur the proccess completely with no hang ups or errors; however, the same message appears after each reboot;

"Incomplete Restoration"

Your computer cannot be restore to: Saturday October 17, 2009 (any past restore dates)
System Checkpoint

No changes have been made to your computer
-------------------------------------------------------------------
I have in the past restored the computer to a past point successfully; it has been a while, though.

I do appreciate your help,

Possibly relevant, http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/share...005113009323013.

I don't use SR at all in XP (rely on routine backups), but I think I will continue to let it function in Windows 7.
