You may use Sysinternals' "Autoruns".

By running it you may verify all autoruns and deactivate this or any other unneeded one.

You may later execute jucheck.exe by simply clicking it twice to check and install future java updates

BTW: the autoruns list is frequently long and includes different types of unneeded elements and malware. By simply unchecking them you may significantly increase the boot speed and strengthen the stability of the OS.

first, install Java6 Update 31 and doing this go to "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\" and run the javacpl.exe as admin:


Now your selection is stored and the updatechecker no longer runs.

We just run a reg hack (or you can push it out through group policy) after installing java

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


The update tab for Java will disappear with this.
