The following is one of the best solutions to updating Java this forum has to offer-it's by Maurice Joyce of Salisbury,UK & if followed to the letter solves a lot of problems.
"I carry out the action outlined below each time I update JAVA - works for me.

Eliminating older versions of JAVA or JRE from your system.

Download the latest Java from here:

The next programme will remove all old versions except the one U have just downloaded.

*This link takes U to the site - select the Windows Binary (zip) option.
*This will lead U to to download it.
*Save the download to desktop.
*Activate the desktop zip icon which exposes the JAVARA EXE file. Click it
*Select RUN when asked.
*Select your language.
*The tool will now appear on the desktop - select REMOVE OLDER VERSIONS
*Once complete select ADDITIONAL TASKS - tick all boxes & activate.

This should have completely removed all old versions. To verify this fact
* Go to control panel>add/remove - you should see JAVA(TM)6 Update 13 - there should be NO other references to JAVA or JRE
* Rerun Secunia - U should get a clean bill of health.

* Right click on the desktop JAVARA zip file & delete "
Good luck & regards,
