    It was recommended that I uninstall JAVA which I did but every day I boot up the following message appears:
    Cannot find C:\program files\common files\JAVA\JAVA UPDATE\JUSCHED.EXE
    I found it after searching and JUSCHED has .pf after it as in jusched.exe-0f4a509d.pf c:\windows\prefetchpf file 15kb
    modified 1/16/2013

    I wondered if anyone knows what I can do about this? I put it in the re cycle bin once but that did not help. I used CCleaner and RevoUninstaller so far and that did not help

    Thank you for your time and knowledge

    Have you tried reinstalling Java?

    Then, to remove it, you can use JavaRa.
