An unpatched hole in Java is making it very insecure. You should disable it -- here's how.
Java is once again being used as a delivery mechanism for browser-based attacks, with a new zero-day flaw spreading rapidly across all browsers, and no sign as yet of a patch to combat the problem. So what do you do to keep yourself safe? For now, disable Java within your browser.

If you're a Chrome user, enter chrome://plugins into the URL bar, and make sure Java is unticked. The process for Firefox users is a little easier: Go to Tools > Add-ons> Plugins and disable Java from there. IE users should click on the gear icon at the top right of the browser, select Internet Options > Programs > Manage Add-ons and make sure that the Java Plug-Ins listed are disabled. If you're a Safari user, it's quite likely Java's already disabled (Apple did so in a recent update), but just to be sure, go to Preferences > Security and make sure Java is unticked.

Java is not listed as a plugin when I go to about:plugins, but when I attempt to uninstall Java which is listed through my windows 7 control panel I get a message that java is running in 6 applications and I should shut them off before uninstalling. Problems is I can't find were they are running.
