    Re: Steps to uninstall Java from Mac?

    Now you don’t have to worry about anything if you have not updated your Java which is installed in your Mac as the security issue is with the latest Java 7 update. So now if you have the Java 7 installed just follow the steps given below to completely remove it from your Mac,

    STEP 1: Select the Finder icon from the dock.

    STEP 2: Select the Applications tab from the sidebar.

    STEP 3: Select Utilities folder from there -> Double-click on Terminal.

    STEP 4: Now in the terminal window copy & paste “sudo rm -fr /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin.

    Once you complete the above steps you can be sure that you won’t have any issue with the Java security problem again. Now if you don’t want to remove or delete that way then you can very disable it by opening the Mac Safari browser and select Preferences -> Security -> Uncheck the box Enable Java which should fix the problem.
