This program keeps wanting to install update. I did a search & found their website but I can't tell what it is for. I got into trouble a month ago applying a download that I thought was from Microsoft but it wasn't so I am really leary about downloads now. This is on a new XP Pro SP2 PC that is attached to a Windows 2000 Server. Any help would be appreciated!!!!

Java is a programming language (javascript is loosely based on it) that allows software to run across various OS platforms; run web applications inside a browser - like online games, stores etc.
The Java preference/settings panel is located in the Control Panel. You can turn off the auto update check there - but you should update to make sure that new versions with bug fixes and security updates are installed.
