    Not sure - I don't see Java in my SysPrefs, but then I don't have it installed so I wouldn't ... ;-)

    Easiest way to check is probably to go to a Terminal window & type 'java -version'

    If you don't have it installed, it will say "No java runtime present, requesting install" & pop up an install dialog. Just cancel out of the dialog

    No -- that's the Java plug-in (for browsers). The java 7 runtime for standalone is not affected.

    Code:
