    Two instances of Java installed


    I seem to have two instances of Java installed on my Win10 Pro 64-bit Laptop .. see screenshot below.
    Can I safely uninstall one of them?

    If "yes" then which one? I have no clue how I ended up with 2 x Java installs on my laptop
    I'm assuming I should keep the 64-bit install, and delete the other? I use Chrome as my usual browser, but very occasionally use Edge

    Or do I need both of those Java installs?

    You can keep the 64bit one and uninstall the other one, there's a newer update 73, get it from official site and don't update from third party sites.
