    Hello,

    I recently downloaded Opera (browser) with java and it seems to have a java plug-in for Netscape too. But I was wondering if I already had the latest sunjava installed do I need these java plug-ins? Could I get rid of the java plug-ins (that came with Opera) and just install sunjava?

    Also if Windows already has java installed should it be deleted before I use the java plug-ins (for Opera and Netscape) ? And would the same apply if I download sunjava, I mean should any java in Windows be deleted first before installing sunjava? I'm just sort of confused with all these java plug-ins and sunjava and all that. Thanks for help.

    Thanks Bigc73542

    I get the exact same info as the screenshot you posted. So are you saying that since I downloaded and installed Opera with java, what I did was installed the latest version of sun java with Opera, and therefore do not need to install sun java separately? Thanks.
