Java Update?

I have been getting a notice saying a new version of Java is available, but when I go to install it, it says I already have this software. Is it an actual update or just glitching?

Yes. I would uninstall it and reinstall it from the site I linked.

You may also need both 634 bit and 32 bit if you are running Windows 7 x64.

Just a FYI, Java 7 is beta. Your not getting a complaint because of Java 7. Java 6 update 29 is the latest official release.

Well just for your information from the Oracle Java page:
Quote:
Why is Java SE 7 not yet available on java.com?


Java SE 7 is the latest release for Java that contains many new features, enhancements and bug fixes to improve efficiency to develop and run Java programs.

Why is Java SE 7 not yet available on java.com?

The new release of Java is first made available to the developers to ensure no major problems are found before we make it available on the java.com website for end users to download the latest version. If you are interested in trying Java SE 7 it can be downloaded from Oracle.com

speaks for itself

But also at Java Downloads for All Operating Systems
