Windows 7: Java update won't stop

Java update won't stop

On Windows 7 Laptop, incessantly prompts to update Java. I've said yes, I've said no, I've changed the settings to turn off automatic updates several times. It won't stop. It prompts about 80% of the time I boot computer on.

I've read a few things about messing with registry edits, but really don't want to start with that. There MUST be something easy I'm missing.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Have you tried uninstalling it? A re-installation sometimes fixes the problem.

Click (Win logo) + R and type msconfig and take a look at the start-up items and disable the Java Updater

Try this way if you haven't already.

On a 64bit system: run C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\javacpl.exe with Administrator priveledges

On 32 bit system: run C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\javacpl.exe with Administrator priveledges

To do this, follow the path in your Windows Explorer browser and Right Click javacpl.exe, then select "Run as Administrator"

Uncheck the "Check for Updates Automatically" Update feature and click on "Never Check" and you are done.

Warning: It seems the next time you install a newer java, it turns back on the "Check for updates";
