Update Java and Adobe

Now is a good time to update Java on your computer. In the past week there have been a few news articles talking about recent security vulnerabilities related to Java. Java technology is used in many devices, websites, computers, and networks.

The best way to go about updating Java on your computer is to go straight to the www.java.com website. From there, on the home page you should see a "Free Java Download" button. Click on that button and follow along the prompts to agree and start the free download.

While you are at it, we recommend checking to see if you need any Adobe updates for Adobe Flash or Adobe Reader. The best way to update Adobe on your computer is to go straight to the source, at www.adobe.com. From the Adobe website, go to the Downloads menu option and select "Adobe Flash Player". Once you do that, on the resultant Adobe Flash Player web page you'll want to first uncheck any free software they try and get you to install (e.g., McAfee Security or Google's Chrome web browser). Next, click on the Download now button on the page and follow along the prompts to install the most recent version of Adobe Flash.

From the Adobe website, we also recommend you checking to see if you need to update Adobe Reader. To do so, from the home page you want to go to the Downloads menu and select "Adobe Reader". Once you do that, on the resultant Adobe Reader download web page you'll want to first uncheck any free software Adobe tries to get you to install (e.g., McAfee Security or Google's Chrome web browser). Next, click on the Download now button on the page and follow along the prompts to install the most recent version of Adobe Reader.
