I just updated to Java (JRE 6 U18). I followed the procedure outlined here on BC to remove previous versions. After updating the last screen said that auto updates ( I think ) were now turned on. Does this mean that we will no longer have to manually delete older versions and that Java will take care of itself now?
Also when I downloaded the update to my desktop as per BC instructions it created an icon on the desktop that I clicked to install the update. It is titled jre-6u18-win. Am I right in assuming that this was the download program and it can now go into the recycle bin? Also even though I deleted the previous java programs in Add/Remove programs I still have java icons on the desktop form previous downloads of updates jre-6u3 & jre-6u4. Should these also go?
Thanks

Yes

As far as I know, you still have to manually delete them
