Java, again. Thank you in advance!

What is the latest current Java update? I recently installed Java 7 update 13 and I'm getting notices to update again.

Is update 13 now vulnerable? Should I update again... and what number update is this?

I know... I don't really need Java, but I do use it for one site. I disable it after visiting that site. Thank you!

2. Thank you.

I have tried for two days to install it, but it's not showing up in my "tools" and keeps coming back that I need to install it!

3. Here is my post regarding Java

If DHS says the updates are not sufficient, I'm not taking the chance. I un installed it.

4. Thanks. Carla.

I tried to update it, but after installing it, it didn't show up in my toolbox. After two tries, I gave up.

I just enable it for the one site I use and disable it right after. I was relieved to see the computer techs who wrote in your post recommend doing that.

5. If you have been trying to install it and it doesn't show up

You have bigger problems.
I suggest you do a full malware scan of your PC, because something is preventing it from showing up. More than likely some malware.
Before you do that, you should scan for rootkit malware, which loads before Windows, and thus remains undetectable by most scanners.

Remember that google is your friend here.
