On my Java insecure notice it says use only with 64bit browser. How do I tell if this applies to me?

Do U use the 64Bit browser? By default 64 Bit system run the more supported 32Bit browser.

If U do not remove Java 64Bit via Control Panel>add/remove.

Do a full rescan & all should be in order.

That was no help. Again how do I know if I use a 32bit browser or a 64bit browser?

U only require to use a 64Bit browser if U elect to. No programme calls on a 64Bit browser to work.

Therefore it does not apply to U if U do not use that browser.

64Bit systems have 2 browsers.

The default browser set up by Windows is 32Bit. Unless U actually click on the 64Bit browser link it is not required hence if U never use a 64Bit browser U can uninstall the 64Bit Java if U have it installed.

I am assuming U have a 64BitOS? If not U will not nor can u have a 64Bit browser.

How to tell if you have a 64 bit operating system:

Click Computer > System Properties look for 'System type'.

How to tell if you have 64 bit Internet Explorer if you have 64 bit OS:

Help > About Internet Explorer. If it doesn't mention 64 bit, it's 32 bit.

Firefox, Opera, Chrome and Safari are only avaiable in 32 bit for Windows at the moment.
