Remove Old Versions Of Java From Your PC With Official Tool From Oracle

Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is a cross-platform web-application, which is indispensable for running various web-applications, online games, etc. on your computer. Unfortunately, JRE is one of the most exploited applications and can pose serious security risks to users if it isn’t updated regularly.


As with all software, the JRE has also updated on a regular basis to give security and new features, however one problem with Java Runtime Environment is that, even if you have updated it to latest version, older versions may still be there on your computer. Older versions potentially pose a threat to your security due to the possible vulnerabilities or security holes that may exist in them.

Earlier, we had posted a solution to remove older versions of JRE from your computer with a little utility called JavaRa. Now Oracle (the developer of Java Runtime Environment) has come up with an online Java applet, which allows users to remove older Java versions from their computers.
If you have JRE installed on your computer, go here and check for any older versions of Java applet remaining on your computer.

This will ensure that the security of your computer is enhanced and extra space on your hard disk is created.
