    I have now installed Java update 65 on a variety of machines. The result always is the same: The uninstaller leaves behind all or at least some of the old program files. For this result it does not matter whether I install the update through the "Java" applet inside the control panel or whether I download the installer from the website and then run this file. The uninstaller does not work.

    Mike, I was just curious where the 66 comes from. I saw it at Major Geeks too, but they've had it wrong for Windows 7 before, by repeatedly offering the Windows 8 version. I only trust what comes through it's built in updater. If I see there is an update the I open up the Java Control Panel.

    Cliff I have no idea myself, when I checked on Java's web site, they confirmed that I had the latest version installed. 65....so you got me Cliff, that's why I told that user, it was incorrect, just like you did.

    I remember in the '90's we thought Java would be the next best thing - got a dev. certificate and all - but never used it since... .proved to be too resource hungry - but it's good to see it's still going strong.

    From Malwarebytes Unpacked, I HIGHLY recommend you go read the FULL post: https://blog.malwarebytes.org/online...ava-i-ordered/





    On several sites, we have seen reports of popups that look very similar to the one Java used to notify users when the content of a site requires the Java plugin to show the full content.
    But if we follow this particular prompt we get something completely different called “Media Downloader”.
    The downloaded file is called setup.exe and is recognized by a few scanners that detect this file as potentially unwanted adware. (PUP.Optional.Media)
    It installs a program called Media Downloader version 1.5.
