My question is this, I have windows XP and I get a message when I go to update Java that XP is no longer supported . It says I can proceed with the update , but should I do it ? Is it wise or safe ? My computer is running good and I don't want to jeopardize that.Thanks!

Support of Java was terminated on April 8, 2014.

If you really need Java to run some programs then download it. Otherwise you do not need it and should not be downloaded.
Check your current version it may be that you have the latest.
