Definitely get the latest java here is the link and destructions  ;D

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malicious sites can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update:
  • Download the latest version of  Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 4 and save it to your desktop.
  • Scroll down to where it says "JJava Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 4...allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Read the License Agreement and then check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement". The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation and save the file to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove Programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check (highlight) any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u4-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.

Hi, I replaced the Java program.

Should I replace the adobe as well?  If so, would you give me the step by step instructions like you did for the Java program?

And, a step by step on how to use Avast to check thubdrives and cd's for viruses before opening them.

Thanks for your help.  My email has not had those bad Daemon things for several days.

If it is outdated...
You can download the latest version from adobe site.
Uninstall the old version through Control Panel.
Boot.
Install the new downloaded version.

And, a step by step on how to use Avast to check thubdrives and cd's for viruses before opening them.
Let the avast Standard Shield settings on default ones (Normal level) and any file opened or executed from the drivers/cd will be scanned.
The best things in life are free.
