Remove old versions of Java

If you are attempting to disable Java through the Java Control Panel you will not see the check box you need if you still have older versions of Java installed.  These instructions will help you remove them.  Once they are removed, the check box will appear in the Java Control Panel.

Java programs go by many names.   If you see something with Java in the name and the publisher is Oracle (or Sun Microsystems) this is what you need to remove.  Anything called JavaScript is OK and should be left alone.  You can determine if you have the most current version of Java here.   (NOTE:  If you install a new version of Java, please remember to un-check the box that installs the "ASK.com" toolbar.  It is not needed.) All other versions should be considered old and available for removal.
