    Used Software Updater to grab it. 158 MB, no restart required.

    Wow, so I downloaded it and it completely ruined my program "Shoddy Battle" so now I am unable to play.

    It is a pokemon simulator, haha :D.

    Is there any way I can erase this update?

    If you're using Time Machine, you can back up from before the update. Can you reinstall "SB"? That might be the better solution.

    Go to Application/Utilities/Java/Java Preferences, there you can tell it to use an older version of Java.

    Will Facebook's photo uploader work again now? Safari 4 killed it :(

    Apparently it took some prodding to get Apple to resolve this. But it will be nice to be able to enable Java in web browsers again.

    Edit: Ah, I just noticed this update requires 10.5.7. It looks like I'll be waiting to re-enable Java, since I don't plan to upgrade my OS until 10.5.8.

    It is about time. Most of what I do online needs this. It was a pain turning it off and on off and on. My school email and my online banking were the worst!

    Just curious, how come I always see users so reluctant to restart their computer?

    I get the same error message on my Macbook Pro...

    edit: Closed Software Update, opened it again, it re-downloaded the Java update and it all worked this time...
