is this a virus

  jammin 11:30 26 Apr 2005

a new icon has just appeared on my taskbar when I click on it its says that updates are ready to download
I clicked on properties and a dialogue box appears called java TM plug-in control panel
as I haven't seen it before I'm a bit wary
any suggestions?

You're safe enough, it installs with 'Java Runtime Environment'. Click on the update tab and then untick "Check for Updates Automatically" - that should sort it.
