As always, you can get the latest Java updates from the following methods:

- Any other method: http://www.java.com – click the Free Java Download. It should auto-detect your system.
NOTE: If you use the offline installer found on java.com, make sure you’re aware that it bundles either Ask Toolbar or McAfee Security Scan Plus. It isn’t recommended to install either one, but that choice is up to you.
