Java security problem

Warnings all over the internet to disable Java, but on my Windows 7 64 bit system I go to control panel, do a search for Java, or Java control panel, and get nothing back, as though it were not on my system. I know it is there somewhere, because I am able to browse online with no problems. Could a hacker have got through? Will F Secure security suite stop a hack through the Java enabled browsers? Please help, need help to find java control panel to disable it. There is no java program to uninstall. Please help

Re: Java security problem

Very few websites use java nowadays, so why you think you have Java?

If there is no Java in your control panel, that means you have no java.

Re: Java security problem

I turned off Java on my Google Chrome, which allows that, and now I get a message saying with Java turned off I am not getting some things when I visit a web site using that browser.  Internet Explorer has no way to turn it off, so you have to turn it off for the whole computer to turn it off.  I am not getting the message when I visit the same site with IE, making me think it is turned on.

Re: Java security problem

Hi Jack,

You can verify if you have Java installed from the page below:

 

1. Check your Java version

 

2. How do I test whether Java is working on my computer?
