I was not able to disable Java with the instructions give. I found out the reason I couldn't was that I had Java 6, Update 20 rather than Java 7, Update 10. I could see no reason to download Java 7 and then go through the steps to disable it, so I took it off my computer entirely.

They released java 7 update 11 on Jan 13th. By Jan 18th, Firefox has already blocked the new release because of security flaws.

Don't breath easy just because you have java 6. There have been numerous security bug reports about java 6 for the last year. They just weren't as well publicized as java 7.

Java has been on a downhill slide ever since Oracle bought it from Sun.

There have been bugs and security problems in Java since Java's inception.

The next exploit is there just waiting to happen.

Live with it. If you don't need Java, disable or delete it. If you need it, have a virus protection program. I have Norton's Internet Security Suite and I was notified by Norton's that I (we) were protect against the Java threat.

Just remember that when it comes to virus protection you get what you pay for, and paying for it is not really expensive when you consider the peace of mind.

Happy trails.

There is a long discussion about Java over on the escapees.com computer forums. After reading all the posts by techies there, I deleted everything with Java in the name. Haven't had one problem running any programs or surfing the net yet. Rather than attempting to repeat everything in that thread, I strongly suggest visiting the forum and read up yourself.
FWIW those same techies there use Microsoft Security Essentials free antivirus software.

Mea-Culpa folks; I just encountered my first problem from deleting Java JRE. I attempted to sign-in to my email account at Mail.com and was stymied because of a pop-up that first appears when opening the website. It wouldn't allow me to reach the sign-in page. I reinstalled JRE and now it works. So, I have found one website that requires JRE.

If anyone plays games on pogo.com, you can add that site to the list. Most of their games are java based.
