    Java Conflict of Information

    I am using Internet Explorer 9. (32-bit)
    In control panel Java (32) bit) General tab is showing Java Standard Edition version 7 Update 6 (build 1.7.0_06-b24).

    The update tab when clicked reports that I have the latest version installed on my system. Yet when I visited the webpage: Verify Java Installation, it reports that an older version was detected and sends me to install the recommended version: 7 update 5.

    What's going on here? Should I ignore the verify version and keep what the Java Control Panel says I have?

    Yes, I think you should ignore it.

    Many of us have uninstalled all versions of Java as this app seems less secure than other apps. I have found that I do not miss it at all. If an app you use or a web site you visit requires it, it will tell you.

    I have yet to come across a webpage that is reliant on Oracle's Sun Java.
    I have also yet to come across a serious application that has to have it in order to run.

    I use JAlbum, even for a professional situation, which uses Java.

    My favorite online game (Pogo) requires Java. If not for it I'd drop Java in a heart beat.

    Some online security scanners require Java, e.g. Secunia Online Software Inspector, and several online antivirus scanners did until recently.
