Healrh Check and Java

I've had a problem updating Java by use of the Health Check site as well as updating Adobe. My latest snafu I tried using my ADMIN account to update Java and this worked; but when I did a health check again, Health Check hung over the top of an error message that could not be retrieved. Remedy was to reboot the computer. I believe that the problem is associated with Java because I use both 64 and 32 bit IE9 on a Windows 7 operating system and it was remedied by updating both of the Javas. When the 64 bit wasn't updated then Health Check hung in 32 bit. After I updated both Javas things operated properly. Anyone else have a similar problem?

    I agree. Most problems are solved when you are always up to date or at least don't get too far from the current version.image

    I want to know one thing when some latest update is installed then what happens to the older updates. It overwrites on it or else keep as it is and the new update gets installed or else remove the older updates and the new update takes place
