    I saw a piece on the news today that said Java was having serious problems and needed to be removed or disabled from on p.computers until a fix was ready.

    I don't find any indication of java installations anywhere. there's no control panel applet for Java Panel. I can't find any reference to java in add and remove programs.

    Any ideas on how to proceed?
    Thanks in advance.

    It's possible that you may have never downloaded and installed Java on your computer. If that's the case then you would not need to worry with uninstalling it. You can test that by going to Java's official site at the following link:


    If Java is installed it will tell you what Operating System you have and what version is installed. If that does appear for you please reply back and let us know so we can help you with removing the version that is installed on your computer. If Java is not installed or disabled you will just be presented with a link to download it.

    The link I posted above is to the official Java site owned by Oracle..

    Hope this helps! If you have any problems let us know!
