Having recently received an email from norton suggesting that following recent Java virus attacks it advised to ensure latest version of Java was installed. On checking I found that I do not have Java installed. I have Windows7 & IE9 operating system and have never had any problem accessing the internet. Is it actually neccessary to have Java Installed?
