    I wonder if this update will be hassle-free. Will wait a few days for the automatic updaters to get out of the way.

    The stand-alone installer is here, generally painless compared to previous prior to Oracle obtaining Sun Microsystems.

    The release notes explain the differences, as best as I understand them. You might use this stand-alone installer, it has worked for most that I know including me but you might be careful with third-party offerings like Google Toolbar, etc.

    I am sorry I can't find the hint. Could you kindly advise where I can find it in the release notes? Thanks.

    There are two on the Java site, the one with -s is an offline installer and the one with -iftw is an online installer. The one on th Oracle site without a suffix is described as an offline installer on the page, but it's about 0.22MB smaller then the -s offline installer. Perhaps it doesn't include the Yahoo toolbar?

    Confirmed. The one with -s is an offline installer that will install the Yahoo toolbar without asking and the one on the Oracle site without a suffix does not install the Yahoo toolbar.:cool:

    Is anyone else getting a compile error "Expected ";"" that pops up 5-6 times after checking java updates? I have been getting this regularly on all my machines. I have googled around but couldn't find anything on this. I am about half a mind to turn java updates off.
