My system tells me I need to update Internet Explorer Oracle Java Active X. I am a light user, needing web access, emails and photo and document storage. What action does it perform and is it essential?
Since we are talking about Oracle, the update is mandatory. I recommend installing it for the good functionality of your applications. Otherwise, bugs won't be resolved or in the future you will encounter problems and be forced to perform the update. More precisely, you are not forced to do the update now, but sooner or later this will be very important.
