Sigh! I found the above in my Program Files (x86). It doesn't sound good, and I got a slew of hits on how to get rid of it. I'm not in a hurry to have another missing boot manager. What is a safe way to get rid of it without throwing out the baby? Also, I was already planning to go back to Firefox as my main browser before you posted about the Java problem. I don't have Firefox loaded, but IE or something else has been slowing down my laptop a lot lately. Maybe it's just IE not being the best of browsers, or it could be malware. I do have MalwareBytes. Again, I don't want to do anything to totally crash my computer like I did last April. If I load Firefox and make it my default browser, does it come with Java already on it?
