Java should always be kept up to date.

Update your Java version here: http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp

Note 1: UNCHECK any pre-checked toolbar and/or software offered with the Java update. The pre-checked toolbars/software are not part of the Java update.

Note 2: The Java Quick Starter (JQS.exe) adds a service to improve the initial startup time of Java applets and applications. If you don't want to run another extra service, go to Start > Control Panel > Java > Advanced > Miscellaneous and uncheck the box for Java Quick Starter. Click OK and restart your computer.

Now, we need to remove old Java version and its remnants...

Download JavaRa to your desktop and unzip it to its own folder
  • Run JavaRa.exe (Vista users! Right click on JavaRa.exe, click Run As Administrator), pick the language of your choice and click Select. Then click Remove Older Versions.
  • Accept any prompts.

To see what version you have...click Free Java Download at http://www.java.com/en/.

To update...same link, just follow the yellow brick road :thumbsup:.

Yes, any user with java installed needs to continuously check for updates, IMO. Java has security vulnerabilities that are addressed with each update, much as XP has critical updates. To ignore the updated versions...is to have a system more vulnerable to malware.

The java helper is unnecessary...all you need is the download available at the first link I posted.
