Re: Feds warn PC users to disable Java

I ran into that page yesterday along with a list of plugins that weren't up to date.

Felt forced to update Java so I did but used WinPatrol to disable/remove everything possible afterwards. Am not sure the out of date plugins are worth messing with. I don't use IE and never accepted the EULA for applications in Windows Live Essentials 2011.

Edit: I just disabled the two plugins with "Java" in their names.

2nd Edit: Didn't have Java before Oracle took advantage of my ignorance and tricked me into that download. Nothing I do needs it. Uninstalled using Add/Remove Programs and searched for/deleted everything Java created when it installed. Sneaky!

I rest my case.
