Thank you, evidently I haven't needed Java, it's not listed in Programs & Features. Silverlight came pre-installed here also. If memory serves me right, the only time it's popped up is on Microsoft sites so will go ahead & uninstall. I did go to Adobe site to update Flash since I'd clicked the 'Remind me later' button yesterday. By the way, it's listed in Programs & Features as Adobe Flash Player 11 Active X. Is that the only way it should be listed?
