Java 6 Update 21

HP Desk Top PC
Vista Home Premium 32 bit with updated Vista service pack
Last night I removed Java 6 update 20 from my computer. Removed it via the add/uninstall function from the vista Control Panel.
I then rebooted the computer to make sure Java was deleted, which it was.
Then went to java.com home page to download the java 6 update 21, and Installed directly from the java website
All appears to have installed correctly. C:\Program Files\Java showed the 6 update 21 version
And when I went the check your version of java page, it indicated that I have Java 6 update 21
But I noticed that I had a folder in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Java
Is it normal for there to be a java folder in both C:\Program Files\ AND in C:\Program Files\Common Files ?
I notice that C:\Program Files\Java\bin has the java.exe file among many other java files, so that sounds cool
But in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Java has the jusched.exe and all the java files involved with checking for updates.
These files are not located in C:\Program Files\Java\bin
Thinking it was an error, I uninstalled and reinstalled java 6 update 21 with the same results
So does this appear normal to have :\Program Files\Common Files\Java and C:\Program Files\Common Files\Java ?
When I had Java 6 update 20, all those files were located in C:\Program Files\Java\bin
