My MVP colleague and TWCF Mod Corrine adds: Java Ra hasn’t been updated to support removal of JRE 7 and, in fact seems to have trouble past JRE 6u32. In addition, Paul Mc Lain no longer supports Java Ra but Freð ðe Vries still does.You can download and install Java for Windows manually from here.Keeping old and unsupported versions of Java on your system presents a serious security risk.Older versions of Sun Java (up to JRE 6 update 7) indeed did remain when updates were installed and need to be removed as the older versions of Sun Java are highly vulnerable to Winfixer/Vundo.
I have been told to update my Java but when I do that it doesn't go through.
I currently have installed Java 6, update 31 (build 1.6.0_31-b05) Over the past few months Java has indicated that there is an update available.
When I authorize it to update, it displays and error message: Error - Java(tm) Update Failed to download required installation files. **** UPDATE **** Problem solved - by logging into the same computer, using a User Account with Admin privileges, Java installed without fail.
Even when using the most up-to-date version of Sun Java, if older, vulnerable, version(s) are still on your computer, it is vulnerable to infection.
Unfortunately, simply using Add/Remove programs to uninstall the old versions is not completely affective. After updating Java to its latest version today, I ran Java Ra and used it to remove older Java versions.
