It would probably help if you gave more information about what problems you are experiencing and Windows version you are using.

If you're thinking about the security issues (same as Adobe and Windows) then this article is worth a read. Tips on how to use Java at the bottom. click 'ere.

I removed Java well over a year ago and, so far, no programs or web sites that I use have failed to work.

If you are concerned about Java try removing it and seeing what happens.

Pine Man, some online games require it and I thought the tip on using two browsers was good. IE for surfing etc without Java and , say, Firefox for online gaming that requires Java.

Like yourself dumped Java a long time ago but some sites require it for auto updating. Nvidia drivers for instance and some real-time weather programs are two I know of.

I am not involved in any online gaming so that wouldn't have caused an issue. Also, although my graphics card has nVidia drivers,I update them manually.

I use firefox mainly but, when I cannot access this site in firefox, I use ie and connect immediately - I know it doesn't make sense but it never fails!?

just to answer a couple of queries above. win xp pro, java required for yahoo games which at present i cannot play because of this issue

There's a link to completely remove Java run time. click here that and reboot.

Go to Verify Java link and it will, or should, lead to your OSs latest version.

Something wrong with PCA's reply format. Time and again the word preceding the link, even with a single space, is then thrown to the bottom of the post.
