Some security bugs inside Java allow rogue programs to access your computer and your files by simply passing through a Java program without notifying you anything. If you do not use Java, or if you do not know whether or not you use it, the easiest solution is to uninstall it. If you use applications for desktop, we recommend you to disable it for web applications. Finally, if you still need Java for web applications, it is safer to use two browsers: one dedicated to Java applications and the other for all other activities on the Internet.

How To Uninstall Java Completely

Step 1: Click the “Start” button and then click “Control Panel“.

Step 6: Confirm changes by clicking “OK” button twice. The Java plugin will be disabled in all installed browsers on your computer.

Step 1: To disable Java in Internet Explorer, click the “Tools” menu and then click “Manage Add-ons“. Click Java plugins listed and click “Disable.”

Step 2: To disable Java in Firefox, click the “Firefox” button and then from drop down menu click “Add-ons“. From left navigation select “Plugins” tab, click the “Disable” button next to all Java components.

Still, always keep your eyes open when you need to use any kind of Java apps (e.g. apps on Facebook), because in most cases they are the main source of these kind of problems.
