Keep your Sun Java up to date!

Older versions of Sun Java are vulnerable to numerous exploits which can be used to infect your computer.

Current and last version for XP is Java 7 Update 79-80
Updated: The future of Java on Windows XP

Current version for all others is Java 8 Update 144

You must delete all old versions from add/remove programs before installing the new version to start with, (most people have multiple versions installed) after this you can just update your Java or set it to automatically update for you.
Go to your control panel > Java > Update tab > Update.
(See Below)

See What Version of Java Are You Using?

Java SE Runtime Environment 7u79-7u80

For added computer security, it's recommended to Disable Java through the Java Control Panel in your web browser.


A great way to remove the older versions of Java is by using JavaRa.
Use your add/remove programs first!

Download JavaRa and unzip it to your desktop.

  • ***Please close any instances of Internet Explorer before continuing!***
  • Double-click on JavaRa.exe to start the program.
  • Click on Remove Older Versions to remove the older versions of Java installed on your computer.
  • Click Yes when prompted. When JavaRa is done, a notice will appear that a logfile has been produced. Click OK.
  • A logfile will pop up. Please save it to a convenient location.
  • Reboot before installing the new version.
