Do I need Java on my computer?

I am running Windows Vista and there are two user accounts on this computer.  This morning I updated Java on one user account.  Do I have to also do the same update for Java on the other user account.  Also, I am finding that this Java update procedure is time consuming and very aggravating.  It is happening on a fairly frequent basis.  Do I really need Java on my PC or can I just remove it completely?
thanks,
capreol

it depends on software you are using.
Java is not required for your OS (Windows Vista). Your windows will run without problems without Java. You need Java only if you have some apps or use some web pages coded in Java

Try uninstalling Java and then go about a few days of normal use of the PC.  If you are on a site that needs Java, you will get a popup telling you to install it.

Don't uninstall Java. Just disable it from your browsers. Then go about a few days of using your PC...
