How to remove older versions of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) to protect your computer?

You probably have JRE ( Java Runtime Environment) installed on your computer as these applets often required to play online games, chat with people, view images in 3D, and many others.

As with all software, the JRE is updated on a regular basis in order to give security and new features. The older versions should be removed from your computer because these are no longer required. Older versions potentially pose a threat to your security due to the possible vulnerabilities or security holes that may exist in them.

JavaRa is a tiny freeware (150Kb) tool that checks if your computer has the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE).

If the version you have installed has been superseded by a newer version the program will download and install this newer version for you, by running Java’s update program. JavaRa then allows you to remove all possible older versions of this program.

This will ensure that the security of your computer is enhanced and extra space on your hard disk is created. Currently, JavaRa supports Windows 9x, 2k, XP, and Vista without UAC.

PaperBus-free & fast web proxy solution for anonymous internet surfing

There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading ( we had covered few of them in the previous posts ), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country. If you are looking for a free, fast and reliable proxy solution for anonymous surfing, Here is a new multi-platform application, PaperBus (ad-supported) which lets you surf anonymously and bypass internet filters. Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required. The only down side is there will be an ad web browser tab popping up in every twenty minutes while you are using it. Another interesting feature of PaperBus is that you can create a list of websites you don't want to surf through PaperBus. PaperBus is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Download appropriate version from here. ( via )
