FYI... Jave Version 7 does not uninstall the previous 6 u26 version. The older version has manually be removed, before updating to version 7.

An alternate download for Java:
http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp
If you look at the "Offline Instructions" link http://www.java.com/en/download/help/wi ... wnload.xml
Step 5.
5.Oracle has partnered with companies that offer various products. The installer may present you with option to install these programs when you install Java. After ensuring that the desired programs are selected, click the Next button to continue the installation[

This may indeed be an Ask Toolbar reference.

I suggest not installing any "partnered" software.

What's the latest on deciding which one to install on an OP's machine?
Are the version 7's still in beta?

The Java.com homepage has a download link that goes to a page that says Recommended Version 6 Update 31 so I am recommending version 6 still until that page recommends v7.

Thanks for the info. I'll follow that as well.
It does seem strange that v7 is on update 3 already, and isn't recommended yet.
