The Java home page show the latest to be 6. http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp


About Java... Java is a general purpose programming language with a number of features that make the language well suited for use on the World Wide Web. Small Java applications are called Java applets and can be downloaded from a Web server and run on your computer by a Java-compatible Web browser, such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer. (Thank you webopedia)

I'm not sure what they are referring to when they suggest "to leave it unchecked", as I understand it the resident shield is already active upon installation.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

There was considerable confusion and discussion here at BC (as I am sure you have read)about the latest version of JRE, but it now appears that the last version is actually 1.5.0_8.
See halfway down the page here:
http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp

It seems that different Java pages give differing information about which is the most recent release.

John

thank you very much, think I found the ansewer about Ewido guard
At first, well have to disable Ewido guard since it may interfere with our cleaning (We can enable it when you're clean)
and about Java think its better to wait until the same programm has an update.
thank you again

Thank you John, I was not aware of this, so much for trusting home pages.

As a matter of fact, there was even a discrepancy between various Java pages and the Java Control Center's most recent version when you manually attempted to update JRE. This seems to have been fixed, though the confusion continues.

Here is the link, DC3, to the rather Long BC thread about the latest version of JRE. Figuring out the correct version was, as you will see, not an easy task:

Thank you John
After reading the hole thread about Java you send me, the only thing that is now clear for me is that its not clear for anybody and the best thing to do is when your are not sure its better to stay where you are and wait.
thank your very much
