Okay buddy215,I'll ask the ultimate stupid question.
I'm sure I've d/l a java update this way before and had to choose the "Windows Offline" option at 15.74 MB. Which doesn't make sense to me because I am on line!
This is kind of important to me because of being on dialup service.

I'm on dial-up also. What I do: I go to a computer with broadband at the public library or the university, download the offline installation to my thumb drive, then go back home, uninstall and delete the old version since the new install won't get rid of it, then install the new one off my thumb drive.

You should try the online installation. Actually, I am going to wait till 6.0 comes out. Should be soon. Get this, if you go to their page where they check if you have Java, they will tell you that update 8 is the latest!!! So I see no hurry as it is a minor change.

The latest update fixes only three minor bugs, no security problems. It is a good idea, though, to use the offline installation, and save the file to a disaster recovery disk.

If there are only minor changes with no security problems and 6.0 will be out soon,I think I'll just wait.
What do you mean by

save the file to a disaster recovery disk.

jgweed? I make copies of my installer files but how do you make copies of updates? :thumbsup:
tg1911,I tried the online installation and nothing seems to happen,is that what you use?
Good idea Orange Blossom but I manage to do my huge d/l's very early in the morning.Have had friends with broadband d/l things for me in the past tho.

I always use the Off-line option and save the executable, like John said, in case of emergency.
Say you install the latest update and it doesn't work.
You'll always have the previous update, that you know works, to fall back on.

jgweed? I make copies of my installer files but how do you make copies of updates?

Don't click on the Update button.
Download the updated version of the program, then install it.
Then you have the installer.
