Do you even have a need for Java? Most users don't.


If you need it...update it. But you should open Java and select to update from there. Never click on any link that is asking

you to use it to update Java or any other program....especially Adobe Flash. Always go to the website or use the programs GUI to find updates or make other

changes such as passwords, etc.


If you do update...be sure to pay attention and UNcheck offers of toolbars and adware such as Ask.


Watch for something like this:
