Following is quote by a more knowledgeable (than I am) Staff member (quietman7):

 

"Using Java is an unnecessary security risk...especially using older versions which have vulnerabilities that malicious sites can use to exploit and infect your system.

Although, Java is commonly used in business environments and many VPN providers still use it, the average user does not need to install Java software.
*
Why You don't need Java
* W3Techs usage statistics and market share data of Java on the web
* Java: should you remove it?

I recommend just uninstalling Java if you don't use it."

Thanks Gentlemen!  Louis I mailed him the links in your post, he uses it for his stock program.  I told him to contact the company to see if they have a newer non Java program.
