Is used to run certain applications/amimations on webpages. It's advisable to install it as updates often include security fixes etc, and generally run better. It should be either Runtime 5 update 10 or runtime installing. After the install is successful go to start>control panel>add or remove programs and look for Java entries in the list as I have found it often leaves old versions on taking up space. Anything earlier than Runtime 5 update 10 you can uninstall.

Yes install it assuming it's the Java run time environment vers 1.6. It's to allow things like some animations to run on your PC. click here
