In my control panel, programs and features there is one Java tm6 update 18 (64-bit). Yet when I go to Downloaded Program Files, there are three, two show Installed and they are Version One shows as Unknown and when I go to its properties, it shows This Page lists the Version Information about Java runtime environment 1.6.0. When I right-click I do not get the choice to delete. Wanted to delete two of them.. How do I do that, please?

At the top is the 'Products' link, click on it.
Scroll down until you see "Download Windows Binary (.zip file)", this will brind up the zip file, then proceed with the install.

I tried the program before putting up the link, it works (even gives you more options under the tab 'Additional Tasks').

I did this and used the uninstall button. I did not use the update button, as I wanted to check my Programs and Features to see if it might still be there. I rebooted and went to Programs and Features and one Java tm6 update 18 (64- bit) is still there. So I went to the Downloaded Programs files to see what is in there. And the same three are in there. I thought that they should be gone. Not sure what this means. Should I go back to the link and use the update button?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
