In Windows, how can I check for, update, and remove old versions of Java?

You can check your current Java version at the Java verification page. If an old version is detected, you'll be prompted to update your software. You can install the latest version from Java.

Either before or after installing the latest version, you should uninstall older versions of Java.

If that doesn't work, try the Secunia Personal Software Inspector.

If you can't remove old versions of Java using the methods above, contact your campus Support Center.
