nowadays everything have updater.

you need update but you don't need the updater to check for update every time you boot the machine.

just click and do the update. you can't uninstall the updater without uninstall java plugin, you can set it to check once a month, or manual though.

(windows) Control panel --> java --> update

It is a feature that is responsible to maintains your computer up to date automatically, and it comes with the latest Java releases. It is not a must that you have it on your computer, and you can have more information here http://www.java.com/en/download/help/java_update.xml.

Before you update, take an inventory of your applications and see if they work with the latest Java. Some commericial Packages or applications only work with JAVA 1.6 vs 1.7.
Updating with the latest JAVA may cause failure with your application(s).
