So I tried to uninstall Java from my mac. So I went to the oracle site. http://www.java.com/en/download/help/mac_uninstall_java.xml I couldn't find the file "JavaAppletPlugin.plugin" so I opted for the terminal code. Now all that is left is the "system preferences" icon with a Java label under system preferences. I cannot find any files pertaining to Java. I am probably missing something. Please help.... Thanks.
