A lot of websites rely on Java.

Why do you want to remove it?

I couldn`t get Java updates on my pc. The reason was that there is no Java VM in Windows SP2, only Java Runtime Environment. They are not the same thing.

There are many web sites that you would not be able to view to their full advantage if you do not have Java installed. For example

I was just going through my computer and uninstalling items that I never use, and that was why I was asking.So I will not be uninstalling Java as it is needed.
Thanks for your replys

There may be other programs in your machine that seem to have no purpose - be very careful taking things out unless you are ABSOLUTELY certain that they are not required.

Dontuse the Microsoft Java but use the Sun Java Runtime instead. As long as you have Sun Java, the MS version can be uninstalled anyway ( if you have it ).
