As a result of having run a system restore today, I went back in time to the version of Java just before the current update.
After confirming everything else was okay (which it seems to be), I received a message to update to the latest version of Java. Normally, I update manually, but accepted the prompt and it began the update.
However, somewhere in the middle of the process, it also installed something called JavaFX 2.1.1 - which appears as a separately installed component in the "programs and features" menu via control panel.
I have never had this program before, and have no idea what it's for.
My question is - should I (must I) keep it ? May I remove (uninstall) it without harm ?
I could just as easily uninstall all the Java components and re-install a fresh copy of the latest version, which is how I normally do it anyway.
Any assistance and guidance would be greatly appreciated.
