I got both Java™ Update 21 and Java™ SE Runtime environment 6. What's the difference between the two? Do I update both? Or do i just uninstall both and download Sun Java Runtime Environment 6 Update 23? tnx.

It's always advised to keep your Java up to date as old versions have security flaws.
Please download JavaRa from the link in my signature below to your desktop and unzip it to its own folder
  • * Run JavaRa.exe, pick the language of your choice and click Select. Then click Remove Older Versions.
    * Accept any prompts.
    * Open JavaRa.exe again and select Search For Updates.
    * Select Update Using Sun Java's Website then click Search and click on the Open Webpage button.
  • Download and install the latest Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version for your computer.

If you follow the instructions it will download and install the version you need. Once installed there will also be the update manger installed that will automatically let you know when a new version is available for download.
