    How do I know if I have this Java. Or JavaScript? I couldn't find them in my control panel to remove.

    Go to this site and it will tell you if you have Java, and what version

    How do I test whether Java is working on my computer?

    Javascript is totally different, and unrelated to Java. A Guy

    Vulnerability patched: Oracle releases software update to fix Java vulnerability Open Java in your Control Panel and update it.

    I applied the Java update (Oracle 7.R.11) on my main PC last night (I skipped DEV and QA and went right to Prod)! Do we have any substantiated reports of a system being exploited or is this just hype and hyperbole? Thanks!

    I went to the sight to see if I had Java and it said it only did deck computer not lap top. Interesting. I wonder why?Is this a true check up or is Java pressing to be a paid program in order to be a safe sight???? Or are we paying for a fix ???

Hi guys. I've recently needed to disable Windows 8 Start Menu due to the reason for laziness and that I wouldn't go unpinning each program one by one, after I installed the Office suite and K-Lite Codec Pack, the start menu was flooded by all the programs! Any ideas? Thanks
