The newest update is JRE 5.0.10,not 5.0.9
Click HERE for Java downloads.
I would remove the previous version before installing the new version.
My wife has a late model Acer notebook with AMD processor and 512mb memory. She really likes playing on pogo.com and we subscribed about 2 years ago. Up until the end of Oct everything has been perfect. When she last tried to log in pogo told her that java either was not installed or not working properly. She was told to remove java using the add/remove programs wizard, so she proceeded to remove java and after doing so went to the java website and downloaded the newest version of java 5.0.9 I believe. It now shows java in the add/remove wizard again, BUT the java control panel doesnt show up in the control panel. She spent about 8 hours searching and trying stuff, none of which worked. I then tried the same thing with nothing good happening. I restored the computer to a time when things were working correctly and STILL nothing, tho I get a different error report which I cant remember right now. Any ideas? TIA, Pete
