JAVA, get your JAVA

While working on a problem tonight I found at least 4 different java.exe and javaw.exe and other files on a Windows server.
Domino uses 6.0 and 6.0.1.13 and has JVM5 still as well.
Sametime, Notes client and other pieces too.

What should one do with them all? Can you delete all of them except the java in the proper java directory in the program files directory?

If not, how do you ensure none break the others? Better yet can't all of them just run off one version?

Some technotes on Java versions and IBM Software compatibilities in case you are wondering now:

Supported versions of Java with IBM Lotus Products

What Java is installed with Domino server on UNIX?

Error: "JVM: Correct Version Of Java Not Installed" after Domino upgrade

Is Lotus Quickr services for Lotus Domino supported with Java 6?

Any ideas?
