Out of curiosity, where are you finding all these old builds? It didn't

If there is no "uninstall" shortcut in your start menu, or if it
doesn't appear in the "Add/Remove Programs" thingy, simply delete the
directories -- cuz, clearly they were installed manually, and thus
didn't make any additional registry changes nor added any other files
in other system folders.

The name of the directory is "Program Files" ... note the space, and
not a "Files" subdirectory within "C:\Program".

No. Java is almost certainly a separate package that is used for lots
of other different things (unfortunately ;b).

It doesn't matter :P. But to add/access your Freemail account info
(ie. your new shiny localhost imap and smtp freemail server), obviously
you'll need to have Freemail running (either as a standalone Java
process, or as a plugin if you put Freemail.jar in freenet's plugins/
subdirectory, or as a plugin if you add it somehow via freenet's fproxy
web interface in the Plugins tab.)

Yes. Freenet is like the transport/storage layer, and Frost is like a
download manager that sits on top of that layer. Same with Freemail --
it uses Freenet's transport layer to distribute email.

:D. That always helps.
