I heard from some computer engineers about Java updating some time back. They told me not to install recent Java updates on computer because it may cause some problems. Is it true? Same thing was told to 2-3 friends of mine also by some computer engineers / technicians that they should not install new Java updates on their computer. Is it true? I don't know whether I should install Java updates or not.
