Java update files removal

My explorer shows a number of these:
C:\\Program Files\Java\jrel.6.0.03 -- and a bunch with lower numbers

I assume these are the same which show in Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs:
Java(TM) 6 update 3 -- also others with lower numbers
Also: J2SE Runtime Environment 5 update 10; 5 update 11, 6 update 1 -- and so on.

Question:  Can these be deleted?  Should I keep only the latest ones?

You can uninstall all the older ones . . Just keep the 6.3

Unless disk space is at a premium - they are not really doing any harm. They don't take much up, in any case.
Also - if you are using older apps that have a dependancy on Enviro 5 - and you remove them - the java in the app may not work...

The new version patches several security flaws in the older ones.  Keep the older ones, you keep the flaws

Thank you...

I don't see why these things don't remove themselves when a new one comes along.  Same remark about Microsoft's "NtUninstall", some of which are faily large.  --  Norma
