Looking in “add or remove programs” in XP there seems to be a large number of old updates that are littering my computer.
Mozilla Firefox (en-GB) 22 MB, Mozilla Firefox (2.003) 24 MB Mozilla Firefox (22.214.171.124) 24 MB
Microsoft Net Frameworks 3.0, 2.0, 1.1. and 1.1 hotfix 50-80 MB
Javaruntimes SE 14201, 14205, 14206 100MB each
J2SEruntime updates 1, 2, 4, 6 100MB each
are these still in my system or is “add or remove programs” getting confused?
Can I safely remove the earlier versions or will removing them delete important files for the latest versions? If so should I totally uninstall say Java, then reload the latest version to clear some space?
