Shows the importance of using an up to date internet security/antivirus and even an antimalware package!!

I would say many people are not aware of the Java security issues and I was trying to say a security warning of some kind could be added to the Java downloads.
The Available Releases > Java *** (x**) - possible securty issue, download at own risk.

This is esentially what's happening in Firefox Plugins, a big warning of the security risk with Java(JRE) and a link for more information. I would hope the rest of the browser world is doing something similar.
Honestly, anyone surfing the inter-webs and using JAVA should already know of the risks. Malware and AV tools have beem addressing it for years, browser dev teams as well. Microsoft, Sun, and Oracle have all put out notices many times over the years, tech realated forums too. If a user is unaware of the risks with JAVA they have their head in the sand at this point.
I'm not saying that a mention of it here is unneeded, I'm saying if there's anyone left out there that doesn't know has been been ignoring the numerous warnings regarding JAVA already, they will probably ignore this one too.

Signed and moved to main list. Only those who have APUP 1.4.5 can see it since that would mean they also have the newer AP(1.7.5) which you NEED to have if you have an x64 OS otherwise it won't detect the x64 path correctly.

The Java x64 detection works based off of looking for c:\Program Files(or where ever that dir is according to windows registry) If you look into the javajre_x64.apm you will see this
FilePath=progfilesx64:\Java\jre7\binprogfilesx64 means return only the x64 OS version of Program Files. It shouldn't return the x86 version. I will check the code one more time though to make sure.
edit: awww crap. it does. I must have left that in before I sent it out. I was sure I fixed that before sending it out. Ohh well. Its not a game breaker. I will add it to the list of fixes before it gets officially done.

Then Java (x64) should be restricted to (x64) OSes only, mostly to keep people from being annoyed - IMO.

Sorry people it appears I am the culprit for the blunder....
For those who wish to edit the apm themselves
Insert this before the [Installation] section near the end of the apm in the appropriate apm..
