I scanned for updates using Secunia PSI and it shows no security threats. I have a notification in the tray (bottom right) that there is a JAVA Update ready to be installed. I now have JAVA (TM)6 Update 15 (64 bit). I remember some problem with JAVA that it needs to be uninstalled before installing an update patch. Am I right? Do you know if there is a newer JAVA Update than the one I now have and if so, how do I go about patching it? Any information will be appreciated. I am not computer savvy.
(I have a HP, Windows Vista, Home Premium - 64 bit computer which probably doesn't make any difference what kind I have) I thank you in advance. Newby

The latest version is Update 16. There are no security fixes in this, so Secunia does not flag it. It is no longer necessary to delete old versions of Java. Just double click the notification and you should be able to install the update. There can be a problem if the you are not running as an administrator account. You can also go to www.java.com to download the latest version.
