Is it possible to avoid installing Java in the first place?
Can I avoid Java VIRUSES by NOT installing Java in the first place?
I just lost ALL my info/programs/games installed on my boot drive due to a Java Virus, I manage to identify the virus as: exdoer
This is a Trojan Java Virus that turned OFF my PC at random, even on SAFE Mode.
I tried every Antivirus known to mankind, nothing worked.
Story short I was forced to Format my boot drive and re-install Windows 7, I have to re-install every program now, (I'm going slowly) ... this time.
I like to know if I can avoid entirely the use/install of Java on my PC.
Do we "need Java" for anything?
I know that some websites "require Java" ... so I will probably avoid those (even some sites I like) eg:Redkaraoke.com
I really like to avoid to get infected like this again... ever.
OK, I verify my power supply is: PC Power and Cooling 750Watts (PC Power and Cooling S75QB 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply compatible with core i7)
I bought it about 4 years ago, I'm not certain, but I think that it might not be "strong enough".
