Windows 7: Java problem a MAJOR PITA (cannot disable updates)

Java problem a MAJOR PITA (cannot disable updates)

I'm running 32bit Win 7 home premium w/sp1


I just installed the latest Java 6 update 32 through my admin account. After installation, i disabled updates via its own control panel and clicked apply.

I then login to my standard user account, and go to the java control panel, and it's STILL checked. I run as administrator, but it doesn't prompt me for a password, and opens, but the option to disable it is greyed out.

I've ran it as a different user, (as admin), and the java ctrl panel opens up but it seems to reflect exactly what I did under admin account (it is disabled and not greyed out)

Question is HOW can I ever disable auto updates for a standard user account if it will never let me disable it?

The only workaround is temporarily enabling the standard user account as admin account then settings it back, but this is a pain. Is there a NORMAL way to disable auto java updates?

If it helps, the UAC is completely off too.

I had reached a point last year when I realized Oracle nee Sun would not fix this "bug". To compound this, when I encountered users and their HijackThis reports, their JavaRuntimeEnvironment were never up-to-date!!!

Then someone mentioned JRE is not really needed by W7, only by a few software. I removed the JRE and have not experienced any hiccups from its absence.

JRE is required for the database module of LibreOffice (which I use, just not the database module).

When I had JRE installed (which is now version 7r4), I would disable or remove the java updater in startup, taskscheduler and registry hive. I went as far as renaming update.* files. I also checked my firewall options for exclusion opportunities. But that was then.

I believe just removing the jusched.exe from startup will do the trick. Java seems to insist of adding it, I just delete it with CCleaners Startup tool, or Winpatrol. You could also delete the exe from C:\program files (x86)\Common Files\Java\Java Update

Thanks, I'm sure that will be a fix... although it's a workaround and not a normal fix. I guess this is a stupid Java bug that never got fixed since I've ran into this with even older JRE's.

You need to give the Java Control Panel Admin rights.

Navigate to where Java is installed, usually something along these lines:

C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin

Then scroll down till you see:

javacpl.exe


Right click on javacpl.exe

Then select Run as administrator.

The control panel applet will open up and you can now permanently disable the auto update feature without forever granting javacpl.exe administrative rights.
