I have a program called "Java Runtime Environment 6" on my computer, and it takes up a lot of memory. I don't know what it is, I can't find out what it is, and I would like to get rid of it, but I don't know if it's necessary for the operation of my computer. Also, is there any reason I should keep Quicktime when I already have several other media players that I am happy with? Both of these programs came pre-installed.

If you have the space, you should probably keep them both. There will come a time that you'll go to a website that requires Java for you to use it. There will also come a time that you'll want to watch a clip (probably a movie trailer) that uses Quicktime exclusively. Will that happen daily? No but it will happen. So both are programs that are not extremely useful but useful just the same.
