Certain websites require JAVA to be installed to be viewed correctly. Microsoft used to supply JAVA in all window based computers but has since stopped doing so, now it is necessary to add yourself.

If you use the internet a lot for searching, then I think JAVA is a necessary component.

Thanks!  I just installed more RAM in my desktop so I will download Java back into my system.  With just 256 MB in the old desk top Java seemed to be slowing me down.   I do not have Java on my lap top, I guess I haven't needed it for any info I have been looking for.
