I think this will disable annoying Java Updates

Recommended Posts


I think I have found a way to disable the annoying Java Update notifications and keep the jusched.exe process from running. I have tested this with Java_1.6u1 and several of the Java_1.5 releases, but that is all. By changing the first three reg settings below you shouldn't even be able to see the update tab from the Java control panel, and the last reg setting keeps the jusched.exe process from starting upon the next reboot. You will have to reboot though!

;Disable Java Update and Disable jusched.exe from running at startup

RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy","EnableAutoUpdateCheck","REG_DWORD",0)

RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy","EnableJavaUpdate","REG_DWORD",0)

RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy","UpdateSchedule","REG_DWORD",0)


I would have posted this in the Example Script area, but I couldn't. I got an error message stating I didn't have permission.
