Actually, most programs need Java. Applications, games, websites, anything! If you need it then install. But, I recommend not to update it to JAVA 7. It just got itself new, more dangerous flaws. If you want to use JAVA, you better use Java 6 U 35 - The version I am using.
Got a message from Norton about updating Java. I thought this would be done automatically. Or a pop-up would come up. Hesitant to do anything.
Thanks in advance
