Java Total Confusion

On IE Explorer I cannot launch the Java Console?
At the Java web-page I cannot check to see if I have the correct version as
it simply closes IE when I click to check it.

Can I Uninstall the below programs and then what Java program do I install
for 32 bit XP-Media? I have spent the day looking at Sun's page and I still
do not know what to install. Thank you so much.

Thanking you in advance for help.

You can uninstall that version of Java. If you want to download the latest
version, go to this page and download the Windows Offline Installation package.

Java SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 5

Good luck

Thank you very much. I finally gave up and called Tech Support.
Actually, I had to uninstall both of the following:

J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6 and
Java SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 5

Then install Java(TM) 6 update 5 only and all works well.
Apparently, I had a conflict with above two or they were the wrong program.
I am not real sure. But I work now and my IE does not close on me and I can
display
the Java pages that I was blown out of. I could not even open the Sun
Console.

Thank you very much for your effort I do really appreciate it and quite
possibly this will
help someone else.

Glad to hear you were able to fix the problem. Thanks for taking the time to let
us know the steps you took to get Java working correctly.

I wanted to check back and describe a further conflict. If I sign into
Windows Instant Messaging
the Java will not display streaming video. My system worked great until I
signed on and then
Java errored on the live stream. Apparently, there is a conflict with IM
drivers.
My error is a runtime error. So, if I want to watch Java streaming video I
cannot sign on to IM.

I have spent at least 3 days and many tech calls to finally narrow this
problem down. I hope it
helps some else.
