It's recommended to use this tool via here http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/uninstaller_toolinfo.xml after that restart your computer and install Java 8 and do another manual restart

The trouble with using that un-install link is that it brings up a message saying Congratulations, you have no outdated versions and that version 7 update 67 is up-to-date.

So what is the best way of removing version 7 that will allow me to install version 8?

Just to confirm I now have Java version 8 update 20 installed successfully. And it also shows on the Avast Software Updater as being up-to-date.

Thanks everyone for your help with this.  :D

Good luck. and remember to un-install the older version first. Remember using that link about verifying older versions will only tell you about the 7 series, you may need to do the same as I did by removing 7 manually first then downloading the new version 8 separately.

When a new version is available for download it would be good if Avast was able to employ a service that will attempt to un-install any older version series of JRE, then download the newer version for your system automatically.

Thanks again for both of your comments nightshade. Avast team has plans for Avast Software Updater in Avast 2015 to become more better and include fixes for Avast Software Updater. About downloading the newer version automatically in system that's not available in Avast Free version (only PRO and Internet Security)

Please discard my previous message because it was quoted in a wrong way.

I clicked on the Java JRE download and there are many OS list linix, Mac, Solaris, and Windows OS. Mine is Windows 7 64-bit and for Windows 7 64-bit version there are two types of download one is .exe and the other one is .tar.gz. Which one should I download? I will be doing this in 2 days because ran out of broadband speed lol

See https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=153882.msg1118984#msg1118984.  These two are the offline install programs for the JRE.

I was confused when you mentioned this "See https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=153882.msg1118984#msg1118984.  These two are the offline install programs for the JRE." As for Windowsx86 there are two versions of Java 8 online and offline. I have the 64-bit version of my Windows OS.

Currently Avast Software Updater says that my Java 7 is 32-bit and also it shows that an update for Java 8 is here which is also 32-bit. I will then only download the x86 (online version). Is that correct? Or should I download the Windows 64-bit (.exe file) of Java 8?

The X86 install is needed if you need to use Java in Firefox.  If you are running any 64 bit program that requires Java you will also need to install the X64 version.

I use the offline installers as one is less likely to get an add-on program which isn't needed.  I've never gotten anything but Java when using the offline installers.
