    I run CCleaner maybe 15 times during the day, mostly after being on the internet, it always removes tons of crap, but didn't seem to touch the java files.

    The thing is, with me, I always keep JAVA turned off in my browser unless I absolutely need it for something specific(better security wise). I have it installed not for the browser, but for Macros in LibreOffice.

    That's cool, you have already showed me different ways to remove the older files, other than manually, so Thanks for letting me know about those choices.

    This image say Java Runtime and I understand. The Java that I use is only a plug in for browsers and that is all I need it for. Are you saying that I should use Java????

    Gary, personally I would never recommend running JAVA in the browser.
    But there are sites, such as for banks and older sites, that still need it.
    Like I said above, I keep mine turned off(except when I update it to check).
    The Runtime Environment comes with JAVA. Go ahead and use the built in updater, and you'll see 1.8.0_65 that is version 8 update 65.
    With JAVA there are different versions for the different Windows versions also.
    For the longest time, MajorGeeks and File Hippo were pushing Windows 8 JAVA versions on the Windows 7 crowed, which was totally wrong. Best is, to go to the links, I have in the first post, to verify your version, then update, if you need to, through the JAVA control panel.

    Thanks Cliff, all I ever used was Java JRE. I found the download for it, so I will try it.

    I installed it. @Cliff S I do not need a 64 Bit version as well do I??

    CCleaner only removes temporary files, cached files and so. But it does not delete program files. Same for the clean up option in the Java options.

    In fact, the uninstaller has only removed itself, but not the Java program: The entry for the 60 update no longer was in the list of installed programmes inside the control panel. But the program files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_60\ all were still there.

    Have you tried JavaRA?

    I have removed the old folder by deleting it after I checked that there were no entries pointing to it inside the registry. The 60 update in fact had still been registered as an available Java version. I have removed this registration as well. Apart from that I removed old installation files of the 60 update - the usual stuff, which every Java update leaves behind.

    I guess the old version is cleanly gone - but the uninstaller did not work.
