Microsoft Virtual Machine ???

Hi, I keep getting notification of updates for the Microsoft Virtual Machine. I am a home user running XP Home on a self build connected to NTL 600k broadband. What is Virtual Machine?, Do I need it?, If not how do I get rid of it? cheers, Bill

The MS Virtual machine was Microsofts answer to Suns java machine for web browsers during their recent legal spat.

Hi falkyrn, Thanks for your response. I had already read through that, but, it doesn't tell me anything. Being a home user and not a programmer do I need it? Cheers, Bill

Web pages that use java won't work properly without it.
