    I just installed the latest Java update 13 and when I go to Java's site, it tells me that I don't have the latest version (image 1). However when I go to the Java "test" page, it tells me that I have the most up-to-date version (image 2).

    I have uninstalled (and removed files + folders) and reinstalled and getting the same thing each time.

    Is this just a bug on their site or is it an issue on my end?

    Using XP Pro (sp3) and IE8 + Chrome browser.

    Birdman, I assume that both browsers are experiencing the same result. Have you checked to see if you still have older Java versions installed in your PC that could create conflicts? You can check either via Add/Remove Programs or use JavaRa to remove them.

    I have a machine with IE8 + Chrome installed. However, I get the same result as did Birdman, but only with Chrome; first screen with IE8 shows that the latest version is installed.

    According to Sun, Chrome isn't supported for Java 6. It does appear to work properly but (I'm guessing) that's the source of the first message we're seeing when using Chrome. As JR implied, though, if the same result is obtained with IE8, it's probably a different issue.

    Same result here, Birdman, using IE7 and Firefox.

    Using Firefox and XP SP2 here and both sites tell me I am using the recommended/latest version (Java 6 Update 13).

    Birdman, if the same message is appearing on BOTH IE8 & Chrome, try reverting back to Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0.12 and see if it disappears. Make sure Java 13 is completely gone.
