Is Java a necessary language framework to have installed? As far as I can tell nothing I have installed needs it to function. I don't want it running in the background as my PC only has 2Gigs of Memory and I want to free up as much of it as possible.

java is a pretty important language framework for the internet. a lot of sites use it and many web based applications do as well. are you suggesting that you've got some form of java process running continually when you're not on the internet or what?

Hello Lucrornimium

Java is not a must program to have installed so you are free to remove this program if you wish. If you need it at a later date you won't have a problem re-installing this.

Regards

Oh, no, merely the process that automatically checks for updates
