Java and Yahoo

I tried to upgrade the Java VM because it insisted on doing so (red icon in my tool bar). I noticed that the VM wanted to install Yahoo! toolbar. Why on Earth would a language/VM want to install a toolbar? Since when did languages start doing advertising? What’s next? Sun will release an ad-supported Java that has all modules in the “Yahoo!” namespace?
