    Java updates?


    I got a notification on my system at boot up this morning wanting me to install a java update.

    IIRC, in Win 7 it was suggested that java should not be run at all.

    Is java on Win 10 safe and should I allow updates to Java?

    You may have an application(s) that requires the Java Runtime. The best way to ensure safety is to make sure that you keep up with the updates as these typically contain security enhancements.

    I just started getting update notifications a few days ago myself. I allowed it to install the latest update and I've not observed any problems thus far.

    There are third party software that use JAVA.
    Browsers have modified its use.
    So updates are to improve performance of the third party software.

    Java is needed by some Applications, I have one of those, so it is best to do the update.
