Ok thanks for that now updated.

Read somewhere that you only need to download the 64bit version of flash now if using 64bit-32bit version of W/7 there is no need to download the 32Bit version as well.

Is it the same with java or am I getting mixed up.

i do not know i am still all 32 bit

I may have got that wrong maybe it just installs both at the same time.Never mind.thanks for the update.

Not sure if it is my imagination or not but pages seem to be loading that bit quicker with that update.

Not being a major geek, mine updated, but only from 1.6031 to 1.6032, still version 6.

According to oracle's website, V.7. is still a developers' release.

On this page, selecting 'Downloads' at the top will check if you have the latest version, and clicking the big 'Free Java Download' will download the latest version available for your system.

A bit garbled that. I meant, 1.60.31 to 1.60.32 and the big 'Free Java Download' button...

sunnystaines, thanks for the information. I will wait for Verification before I install. Same kids gloves as with Shockwave/Flash installations. Install too soon and you could land in some difficulties.
