Disabling Java Update
Posted 13 March 2012 - 10:27 PM
jre-6u29-windows-i586.exe install on Win7 32bit , try to disable Java update by registry changes under HKLM/JavaSoft/JavaUpdate/Policy by changing value EnableJavaUpdate & EnableAutoupdateCheck by 0 but still Java update not able to disable.
Is there any other way to disable the java update.
Any help highly appriciated.

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.

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

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy] "EnableJavaUpdate"=dword:00000000 "NotifyDownload"=dword:00000001 "NotifyInstall"=dword:00000001
The update tab for Java will disappear with this.
