Disabling/uninstalling on a Mac may impose a problem, as Apple hasn’t come with an update for the OS X editions that came with Java pre-installed.
Most other users can either install the version on their current system on-line from Download Free Java Software, or download offline installers for other systems at Java Downloads for All Operating Systems.
