    Very important for security if you use the browser add-on. Do not forget to tick "Suppress sponsor offers when installing or updating Java" in the Advanced tab before updating-it's at the very bottom:

    "Suppress sponsor offers when installing or updating Java" - I didn't know such an option exists. Thanks for the info, guys!

    Did the install fail removing older versions for you as well? I had update 60 installed, the 65 installer also found it and I made it remove the old version. However, afterwards all files in the program folder were still there. I had to remove them manually...

    I always update through Java control panel, over the previous, and it cleans out the older version itself.

    Gary that's Java RE not JAVA, 2 different animals.
    Summary:
    1. Java is a software platform, while JRE is a software package.
    2. JRE contains the necessary software for running Java applications.
    3. Java is the same, regardless of the operating system, while the JRE differs.
    I just checked.

    It should, but that didn't work: It did the clean up, but the files have not been removed. I had to do that by hand.
