I just installed Java ™ 6 Update 22 as prompted. The Java website says to remove all updates previously installed. My question is, does this mean I remove everything "Java" in my Add/Remove Programs of Control Panel? "J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 8" and "Java 2 Runtime Environmnet SE v2.4.2_03" are both there. Do I remove them?

Yes. Java updates are often (usually? almost always?) made to plug security vulnerabilities. If you have the latest version, then you have the safest version -- keeping the insecure versions does you no good, but makes you an easier target for malware.
