Thank you Allan, easiest and quickest java install yet.

Yep - I didn't even uninstall the previous version for this update.

Thank you Allan.:)

Edit to add: Dont forget to disable Java™ Update Scheduler (jusched.exe) which re-enables itself to autorun @ startup(screeshot attd)...unless of course you WANT it to. I do this by deleting the jusched.exe file with Autoruns, and also uncheck the update box ( set to NEVER) in the Java Control Panel. (javacpl.exe)

There's really no reason to disable the update scheduler. All it does is run once a day to check for an update.

Point taken. My personal preference is to disable ALL auto-updating/checking. YMMV.

Yeah, I understand - I generally like to control what happens on my systems too. It's just that some things are really not only benign but even potentially useful. Either way though, it's certainly up to you as the system owner :)

Which way is safer to get the update? There is Allen's way as described in first post of this topic, or there is an orange square icon in the task tray with a hover-caption, "java update available". The current java install on the machine now is version 6 build 26. This is the Windows XP sp 3 machine. So which way is safer? The described article of download from Oracle + uninstall java + run the downloaded installer; or just click on the orange icon in the task tray?

There is no "safer". However, if you want to do it the proper way, follow the instructions in my first post.

I am part-way through the process which Allan describes. I noticed on the page with the list of java files, these two:

Windows x86 19.43 MB jre-7u1-windows-i586-s.exe
Windows x86 Offline 19.26 MB jre-7u1-windows-i586.exe


I chose to download the "Offline" one of 19.26 MB. I am curious, what is the difference between those two listed? They are both "x86", and file sizes are close but not the same, and one has "-s" in the filename while the other does not. Is the one with the "-s", not for offline use?

Not sure what the "s" stands for. It's gotta still be the offline version due to the size.

Version 6u29 doesn't have the "s" one as an option.
