I only ask because I don't think I have much space on my laptop but there's a huge list of things on it. I'm sure there must be some I don't need!

You don't need it on your system but some of your applications may require it. If it's on your system it's probably there for a good reason and you must keep it updated (don't ignore those pesky Java update notifications) for best security.

So can I dump it and then see if anything changes for the worse? I can re-install it later, can't I?

I wouldn't advocate doing that. You may be able to but you may also regret it.

Okey doke. I'll just leave it...

Next time you're here, could you have a look at the m/c, please?

Sure! I can look but I'm not that good at working on computers. I use them all day but make no pretentions about knowing how to fix them or make them run better. I'm quite good at destructively taking them apart though.

Why don't you think there's much space?
