I have J2SE runtime environment 5.0 updates 7, 9, 10 & 11 all taking up a
lot of space on my laptop. Can I remove 7, 9, & 10 or are they all
required?

Many thanks,

Geoff.

Yes, you can remove everything but the most current version. Why
installing a new version doesn't ask you if you want to uninstall old
versions I don't know.

(Someone writing Java programs might want several versions to check
that his program ran on all of them but I don't think anyone else
needs more than one version.)

By the way, the current verdion is 6.0 update 1.

http://java.sun.com for the development kit which includes the JRE.
