Your all going to have to forgive me..as I'm a complete computer idiot but ever since I installed Java all i'm getting on my computer is viruses...so naturally I want to rid my system of Java but, is it safe to uninstall it?

My Fiance advised against it, he thinks messing with anything Java is risky but I really want the damned thing off of my computer..

Help would be really appreciated :tazz:

If you installed it and it's in the Control Panel's/Add/Remove Programs list, then yes, you can uninstall it.

Java is basically a program that lets other applications such as LiveChat, Limewire, etc work. Without it, some applications on your computer may become unusable.

If it gives you viruses, yes, you should probably remove it. But are you sure it's Java giving you the viruses and not some other program using it? :tazz:

All the viruses were located within different Java folders so I'm pretty sure it was the source of the problem and I was right, I unistalled it, ran another Virus Scan and no viruses :tazz:
