What programs use Java? I've just updated to Windows 10 and wonder what I'd lose by uninstalling it
I got my Dell Inspiron computer in 2011 and it has been updated from Windows XP to 7 and now to 10.

Although I believe many of them are useless, I don't know which ones to delete, in case I do damage.
I know it's possible to use a clean-up programmed like cCleaner, but I need to know what to clean up and what to leave, so can't use it!

And if you experience them, reinstalling Java can be done in a click

What's your opinion of Windows 10?I upgraded to it using the free download then bought a new computer with Windows 10 already installed-- the personal use version, not the more expensive version for business use. I was wondering what others thought about the operating system.
