I wondered the same thing. I don't have an answer, but I do know that Sun
Micro/Oracle specifically instruct that it be deleted.

Thanks for this information. Exactly what is the ppurpose of Java Run Time
Environment? Is it really needed for anything?

Subject: Java page to confirm it is up to date

I find that JAWS's performance is affected by Java. While in add/remove
programs, I happened to check if Java was up to date on my system. It is,
but in the process of confirming, I discovered I had an old version that
Java website said might be impeding my PC's performance and compromising
security. The only Java application that should show up in add/remove
programs on XP is version 7. I also had version 6. The website
recommends deleting Java Run time environment, which I'd done some time
Now that I've removed Java 6, I've noticed an improvement in my PC's

The following link takes you to the Java page that enables you to
both if your system is up to date, for whichever operating system you
and if your computer has any old versions. Once on that page, press h once
to locate the section you need.
