OK so I've just upgraded my Mac OS X to "El Capitan" and the first thing that happened when I started up was a pop-up box on my desktop read; "To use "java" command-line tool you need to install a JDK.  Click "more info..." to visit the Java Developer Kit download website."

 

I clicked on "more info..." and it did direct me to the Oracle website for installation.  Upon installation my Webroot virus software started detecting several "suspicious" files, all part of this installation.  I've flagged, removed and uninstalled and went directly to Oracle without the "link" and installed the package again after a restart and same thing.  I went in to the Webroot controls and "allowed" everything regarding this java install and still have no issues but that stupid box keeps popping up every time I start.

 

Question;  Do I really need this JDK?  What is it?  Why didn't I need it in the past?  How do I get rid of it if I really don't need it?

 

Any help would be appreciated.  I'm liking "El Capitan" but will remove it to my last OS if I can't find a solution as I've never had an issue with that OS.

 

Thanks!

JDK is the Java Development Kit. Basically it is if you are creating Java programs. If you are not a programmer, you can uninstall it completely. Did you download it from www.oracle.com? In that case, it is likely a false positive detected by webroot

This happened on my first start up after upgrading my OS X to El Capitan so I'm pretty sure it's not virus but as you stated a "false positive".  I get a lot of those from webroot, I'm thinking of uninstalling it anyway.  In looking for an uninstall command for the JDK, I cannot find one.  Can you tell me how to get rid of it please?

Wait, do you use a program like Crashplan? These programs bundle Java because they essentially are Java programs

After I updated to Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) or 10.11 (El Capitan), why am I continually prompted to install Java again?
