    I actually just updated and it worked fine. Make sure if you have both 32 Bit and 64 Bit browsers you must apply the update to both while using each browser separately.

    The Java.com web site historically was difficult to navigate, but the link in the article seems to go straight to the point.

    Alternately, one can get the update using the Java control panel, e.g.:

    Start > Run... > javacpl.cpl > Update tab > Update Now button

    That was fast. Just clicked link and it did scan, result read that I had the latest installed, nothing about fixes, would they have been done automatically when I last used it earlier today (Wednesday)
    I am a bit concerned that I may have missed something. Noel (00.45 GMT+1) Thursday.

    Secunia scanners are good at rooting out old versions of Java in default or non-default locations.

    Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) (free for home users)

    Secunia Online Software Inspector (OSI) (more limited, on-demand scan only; ironically, uses the Java runtime)
