Marsha,I was hoping someone with more expertise would reply before we finished dinner, but it seems not. My control panel shows eleven entries for Java, counting Run Time and Access Bridge.
I think of Java as Internet infrastructure that enables many kinds of content to be provided on the Web, in a way comparable to the role Windows plays on a PC. Java is a product of Sun Micro Systems, a highly reputable technology company.
I keep the update function enabled and authorize any Java downloads, just as I do critical Windows updates.
Again, I hope someone who is more expert will correct either my description or recommendation.

However, is it wise to cancel Java updates? I install all Java updates, as I do critical Windows updates.
----- Original Message ----- From: "RAWest" <rawest@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Here is what you do. 1 go to the start menu and select the control panel.2In the control panel press the letter J until you hear Java and press enter on it.
3When this opens you will land on the general tab. Right arrow over once to update.
4 press the tab key once and you should hear automatically check for updates. Press space bar once to uncheck the box.
5 Tab down until you hear ok and press enter on it. Then alt F4 out of control panel.
Now not sure if the items in the system tray will disappear the next time you restart the pc.
Hope this helps -----Original Message-----From: jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Louis Lucero

They say: "update application" "update java application" and update your computer". They all get you to a screen where it says "install, cancel, or properties".
What should I do? And how do I get rid of them? Much thanks. Louis "Luck is a product of hard work." Louis A.
