    I use Chrome exclusively for browsing, and am currently on this version of Chrome
    Version 49.0.2623.108 m (64-bit)
    Google Chrome is up to date.


    I have also updated Java as per this screenshot ...

    I have never really understood Java, and why it is needed

    Have I done the right thing in updating Java? I notice there are 2 x versions installed. Which is the correct version for my Win 10 64-bit OS? I assume the 64-bit version? But then why would I have 2 x versions installed? And should I uninstall the non-64-bit version?

    I'm not sure, I have only the 32 bit version which I use for some things in LibreOffice. It maybe you have some software installed that needs the 64bit version too. As long as you have only the updated version on your PC, and delete the old versions, you should be good. JAVA is also used by some sites(sadly usually banks, for their interactive aspects. in my browser(Internet Explorer & Firefox) I have the add-ons disabled though. If I must use use JAVA, I can then turn it back on for the short time I need it, turning it back off, when finished. I recommend this to everyone though out of security reasons.

    Thank you for that information ... But it raises another question, i.e. As I don't do any programming at all, do I really need both installed Java versions as in my post above i.e. Post #45

    If I don't need them, can I safely uninstall one of the Java installations?
