I am no techie, which is why I am writing here. I run WIN7 using Firefox v 17 (but will update to 18 when I send this). I have used uninstall programs to delete Java--I think, as now there is no such entry under the uninstall list in the Control Panel. However, now Winpatrol is telling me that the Java program above is persistently tried to load into IE. Should I care? I can't seem to make it go away.

And just to be sure I did a computer-wide search and indeed there is a Jave (jre6) folder, under x86 Programs. Apparently never opened/executed? Also "java.pltsuite".
Should I simply delete?

I never use IE and wish I could entirely delete it, but that is apparently a naive desire.

Lastly:
-- in the search for "java" a "mini-lyrics" application is listed. It runs with my Itunes. Presumably not a threat?
--I very occasionally use WUALA. I read in the Forum that it requires JAVA? What to do about this? (I switched from Dropbox several months ago because at the time Dropbox did not accept pre-encrypted files I attempted to upload.)
--I understand that JavaScript is entirely different, so I can accept or ignore files, etc. that operate this, yes?

THANKS!

In Windows 7 ( maybe Vista too ) if you go to Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn WIndows Features on or off, you can remove Internet Explorer.

Firefox can be used with the NoScript plugin, which disables Javascript on a per site basis.
