It seems to say if you keep updating the program, then each update adds more functionality (i.e. builds upon the last version). It would seem best to delete everything and download the latest version, which I'm guessing would contain the lot in one build, not many...
I hope that's what it's saying, and not that certain versions are required by certain applications, regardless of updates.
However, may I just suggest that you visit sites with java that you frequent. If everything works fine, then I don't suspect you'd need to do anything. I'm sure you could reverse the restore and have a look-see, it might be worth a try if you're only using dial-up and don't want to bore yourself re-downloading the updates. It is always best, mind you, to have the latest updates for these sorts of programs as they provide maximum security and functionality.
I think the sites with Java worked fine as far as I could tell, since I did a fair amount of browsing before I did the restore. But I keep thinking that there will be something somewhere that I will stumble across at some point that will not work properly without the previous version. Who knows? Probably just paranoia on my part. I noticed that my Photoshop Help manual even uses script. Many thanks for your help and suggestions. I will probably do the reversal.
