Windows 7: Any way to detect Java apps/dependencies?

Any way to detect Java apps/dependencies?

Howdy,

Before I remove Java completely for security reasons, I would like to find out if anything needs it. Is there a way to detect Java applications/dependencies besides removing Java completely? Removing it isn't practical because I am unable (unwilling) to test every application on multiple machines.

- Windows 7 Pro

Thanks for any advice that you might offer.

How To Disable Java In Google Chrome TechLogon Technology News | Tech News Help And Tutorials

Try this link if you are using Google Chrome, will find a link for Firefox and Internet Explorer (:

It explains how to disable Java, so you will only need to enable Java when you need to, most browsers give you a notification if the Java plugin is required.

Hope this helps,

Harry

I actually want to uninstall Java completely, not just disable it in the browser, but I would like to make sure that it isn't needed. Thanks for your input.

What applications are you looking to run?

I don't want to run any Java applications if it can be avoided. The problem is that there might be Java apps installed that I am unaware of and I don't want to screw other users by uninstalling it.

Could you provide a screenshot of the installed programs?

Nope, no screen shots since there are several computers. I guess I'll just uninstall Java and see if anyone complains but I hate doing it that way. I was hoping that there would be a way to search for Java apps so I could try to avoid disrupting the workflow of the users.

Yeah I guess so, and then install Java for those users specifically, not many applications and webpages require Java anyway.

Sorry I could not provide any help,
