Hi,
I got a new computer a couple of months ago. Yippee !! :tazz:
After working with it for awhile, I noticed that I had this Java program listed on my list of programs. I don't remember downloading it and am not sure how it got on my computer. Could anyone tell me if I really need this for anything ??
It's listed as being 117 MB which is a lot especially if it is not needed.

Thanks !

Basically, yes. It's like a big package of .dll's and many programs, games and such, that run in Java need it. If it isn't there you may install something and it will say something like "cannot find class file" when you try to run it. When the program runs it loads whatever it need from the J2RE into memory.

Thanks for your reply. I did a search for things Java related on my computer and found that the Encyclopedia Britannica uses it .

Thanks again. :tazz:
