Ran JavaRa, still have old Java core.zips. Delete them manually?

I ran JavaRa. It got rid of a good number of old versions of Java that were still in Program Files' Java folder. But I still have a fairly sizeable j2re.1.4.2-b28 folder. It has the path C:\Program Files\Common Files\Java\Update\Base Images\j2re.1.4.2-b28, containing core1.zip, core2.zip, and core3.zip.

Is there a good reason JavaRa didn't get rid of these zips? Or should I go ahead and right-click to Delete them? Or is there a preferable way to get rid of them?

Best way I've done this in the past is to close all browsers, uninstall Java, reboot the system and then manually find and delete any Java left over (in the Java program files / program data file; if you have something like Open Office [which uses Java and has some cabs in the install / program directory] leave those). After that, download and install latest version of Java for your OS and you should be good to go.
