I am trying to make space on my PC. Had a look at the add remove programs and noticed that I have several Java install files

I have:

J2SE Development Kit 5.0 Update 10
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 10
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 5
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6
Java™ 6 Update 2
Java™ SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 1

These are all sizable files.

Do I nned them all ? or can I uninstall any ?

you could uninstall them all and then go to java.com and install the latest version. For the most part they are just updates for the java client.
