Windows 7: Java 8 Version 131?

Java 8 Version 131?


Less than an hour ago my Java Updater displayed a pop-up saying an upgrade to Version 8 131 was available.
Given Java updates on a quarterly basis it sounds legitimate, but still lists 121 as the most recent version. Is this update safe to install?

Shows version 131 on
Belarc doesn't show it yet so it must have just been listed.

I am listing Java 8 update 131 Build 1.8.0_131-b11 as the current version as of 4/20/2017. I installed this update on 4/19/2017 and Internet Explorer would not start. I checked the registry with CCleaner and I had 1809 issues. All the same.
Problem Active X/com issue Data in Pro server 32\C:\program files (x86)\Java\JRE 1.8.0_121\bin\Jp 2 iexp.dll Registry Key HKCR\CLSID\{CAFEEFAC-0013-0000-0003-ABCDEFFED CBA}
I fixed all 1809 issues and IE seems to be working OK.
Anybody else have trouble with this installation of Java?
Thank you,
