    Default java jre6

    Hi I upgraded my java jre 1.6_21 to java jdk 1.7_40. I uninstalled the jre 1.6_20 using the uninstall in Programs and Features. The uninstall appeared to have worked ok until I noticed that the c:\Program Files\Java\jre6 folder had not been deleted. Is it safe to just delete this folder manually? Thanks.

    Should be fine, but first try going to add/remove programs and see if Java6 is in there. If so, remove it from there. You shouldn't have any problems deleting it though, but you can always reinstall java6 if you need to later. Just make sure if you have made any environment vars (e.g. JAVA_HOME) you change them to the directory for 7.
