    Hi,
    I have Windows Vista on this laptop. For the last week I have been getting notice that there is an update for Java. (It may have started when i installed PeoplePC, for dial-up). I clicked on it to install a couple of times, but it continues to appear at start-up.

    Is this a problem? My sister also had it, and thought it was a trojan.

    You have to be connected to the Internet to install the update. It's a 15MB download, so it could take a while.

    I am online when I start up. But I go ahead & check my sites.
    Thanks though.
