Control panel used to have a tab for disabling java update. Now it disappeared and I can't stop the java updates notifications that drive me crazy. How do stop them?

Press the Windows key + R to open a Run box.

Type msconfig.

Select the Startup tab.

Uncheck jusched.

Reboot the computer.

Thanks. Although I don't know much about computers I could understand your instructions. The problem is, I did exactly as you said but java updates notifications keep coming back. How to stop them?

Try updating Java? :D

It's actually relatively important that you do so. Since it is a very popular piece of software, there are a lot of viruses/malware/exploitations of the software. Updating it will increase your security, as well as make sure you're up-to-date with any new features, etc.

What version of Java do you have? You might need to uninstall your old versions before getting the latest one.

Go to Control Panel - Java.

Click Update(tab).

Remove the checkmark in "Check for updates automatically".

Click Apply - OK and ignore the warning.

Also, remove the checkmark in jusched - per post #2.

Click Apply - OK/Close - Restart.

The Java applet in the Control Panel has 5 tabs:

General - Update - Java - Security - Advanced

There is definitely something wrong if you don't see that 'Update' option. You didn't actually specify the exact version of Java that you have. Go here http://www.javatester.org/version.html and click on the box at the top of the page to check your current version (it should be 1.6.0_23).

Whichever version you have, it is possible to survive without having Oracle Java installed unless you play online games that need it, or you know that you have a program that requires Java (as opposed to JavaScript) to run properly. You could go as far as to try uninstalling Java to see which, if any, of the programs you use regularly are affected.

It's definitely weird that the Java applet doesn't have an "Update" tab. :confused:

One of the first things that I do after updating to a newer version is to go into the "Update" tab and turn off the automatic updating feature.

Need to login with Admin rights to see the "Update" tab.
