what is java technology please?

  Harosie 18:46 30 Dec 2005

I had a new laptop computer for Christmas. When I log on to some websites I get a message which asks whether I want to run java technology from sun microsystems inc which is installed on the computer, and if so I have to agree to the licence agreement. So far I have ticked the "no" button as I do not know what this is. Please could someone kindly advise me what the programme is and whether it's safe. Many thanks.

Perfectly legit and safe and some sites won't function properly if you don't have it.

Thanks for both quick and helpful replies. Just one more thing I have learned from this excellent and friendly forum!
