Ever want to check out whether or not your java virtual machine is running okay?

Yeah, me too. Especially if something you need to do requires java and you don't want to mess things up. What I want to tell you about, though, puts a whole new spin on things. Basically, when you try to download one of the desktop games from www.java.com (a site built and run by your old java buddy Sun Computer), you're going to get a LOT more than you bargained for. In fact, you get a FREE piece of spyware/adware. It's installed without pestering you for permission. After all, they figure you want fun. What's more fun that being loaded with unwanted software without being asked? I downloaded something called 'Arcade Bubbles' and promptly removed it AND the spyware it tried to stick me with.
