Hope U have a nice time.

That is correct - It registers in PSI as Oracle JAVA ......

In Control Panel>add/remove it registers as normal JAVA(TM)7 Update 1

EDIT:
When U say both JAVA do U mean U have both the 64 & 32 Bit versions installed?

If so do U use a 64Bit browser? If not U should uninstall it & lessen the chances of hassle.

@ Maurice. Hi. The two Java files are both 32 bit. I've forgetten the version numbers but let's say that the latest version is v3. When I last updated from v1 to v2, it left v1 in place so PSI saw two old versions that needed to be updated.

Thanks for your help.

PS I should have said that I uninstalled Open Office, Safari, Apple & I-Tunes.

Fine. As stated U only require one copy which should be JAVA (TM) 7 Update 1 - all others can be safely removed which is safer & recommended by Oracle.

Now the thread is dedicated to JAVA U may wish to consider this:

CLEARING & ADJUSTING THE JAVA CACHE TO IMPROVE BROWSER SPEED AND CLOSING START UP ITEMS

Works On All Windows Platforms.

The Java Control Panel applet allows for the clearance of Java's temporary Internet cache and reset the default cache size to a more reasonable level and to switch off unnecessary Start Up programmes.

Clearing The Cache.

1. Go to Start>Control Panel>Click on the JAVA Icon.

2.It will open displaying the GENERAL Tab. Look to the bottom & click on SETTINGS for the TEMPORARY INTERNET FILES.

3. This will open TEMPORARY FILES SETTINGS. Look to the bottom & click on DELETE FILES. A box with two ticks (check marks) will appear - Click OK (The clearance could take some time)- the box will disappear once cleaning is complete.

Pictorials are here if required for identification:
http://www.java.com/en/download/help/plugin_cache....

4. Immediately above the Delete Files button is a SLIDER. Move that to reduce the future cache amount between 100-200MB as opposed to the excessive default level.

5. Click APPLY.

6. Open the UPDATE tab. Take the tick (check mark)out of the AUTOMATIC update box. This will prevent a programme called Jusched.exe running. PSI is already doing this job for U.

7.Click APPLY.

8. Open the ADVANCED tab. Scroll to the bottom to MISCELLANEOUS. Click the + against Miscellaneous & U will see two entries. Take the tick out of JAVA Quick Start - that will prevent jqs from permanently running.

Please note that Oracle JAVA will reintroduce the default settings each time U update the programme.

9. U may also note that Oracle have put a standalone JAVA updater in Control Panel>add/remove - my advice is to remove it & reduce dross.

@Maurice. Thanks.

I actually deleted all the Java stuff including the folder in the Control Panel but I now have another problem as a result of removing Java, ITunes, Quicktime, Apple, Open Office & Safari.
This concerns Apple & Quicktime so I'll start a new thread in General.
