Mysterious Java console

I have this Java icon in my system tray which appears every now and again for no apparent reason. I have no clue as to why it is there. My computer is heavily used by myself, and also is used by my daughter.
The following is the text of the window that pops up when I right-click the icon and select "show console"
What is this, why is it here, and should I get rid of it.

Thanks




Java(TM) Plug-in: Version 1.3.1_02
Using JRE version 1.3.1_02 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM
User home directory = C:\WINDOWS

Proxy Configuration: no proxy

ha ha thanks for asking that one I was going to seek additional comments on that also.

As near as I can see it is the Sun Java 2 plug in and probably has something to do with the feud that Sun and MS have had so long regarding JAVA.

Mine seemed to appear upon installing an evaluation of Earthlink and pops up whenever the IE, which was not updated during the evaluation install process, hits a page with Java.

It is seen in the IE Options Advanced listing and looks like it can be turned on and off there.

I have some other thoughts regarding it but will defer until more comments have been added.

Will be interested in other comments.
