    How can I do this on a non-admin account ? The update tab does not display. Is there somewhere in the registry I can do this ?

    Click Start > Run > type msconfig

    Click OK.

    Select the Startup tab.

    Uncheck jusched.


    Restart the computer.

    After restarting, when the small "System Configuration Utility" window appears, ignore the message. Put a check mark in that window, then click OK.

    If you don't see
    jusched
    in the "Startup Item" column, it may be listed as
    Java(TM) Platform SE Auto Updater 2.0
    Uncheck that entry and then follow the rest of Phantom010's instructions.

    If you have Autoruns, under the Logon tab, uncheck SunJavaUpdateSched.
