that depends on the programs or what online services you use.
java is a serious security threat. thats why it has to be updated , sometimes 2 or more times per week.
it is being hacked all the time.

i uninstalled it 2 years ago and so far have not had any programs that use it.

i think open office still does. but i don't use it.

Just changing the subject line from "question" to something descriptive.

Hello list:

Is "Java" important to the well being of my pc? I receive an update
notification, but don't know how to install it, or whether it's necessary to
do.

Thank you,



David Pearson
