    Java Update


    Hi guys since I installed windows 8 pro on my laptop I have been pestered with Java wanting to install a update.

    It closes whatever I have open and asks to install.

    How do I stop this annoying program

    Regards

    No java update I've ever seen closes all your apps.

    Well let me expand a little when I say it closes the app what happens is the screen goes blank and it says Java wants to install a update, I don't know if the app closes fully but it goes off the screen

    Welcome to EightForums, Sam49. Good to have you.

    I've been using 8 since early June and never heard of this, not to say it doesn't works this way. Why not just let it update? Or perhaps there's a setting in Java via Control Panel not to update. Just curious as to why you wouldn't want it to update.

    Again, welcome.

    Hi HippsieGypsie
    Thank you for the welcome to this forum
    Well I have had to give in and let Java update it has beenasking me several times a day to let the update proceed and I have finally had enough and I’ve let it update just to get rid of the annoying message (Javaneeds to update)
    The reason I did not want Java is I read somewhere there wasa security problem with Java and I just did not want it on my computer if I hada choice.
    The other reason I did not want to let it update was the constantasking me to update what do I need Java for anyway.
    Regards to you all

    Ok. Good. Personally I've never heard of a security issue with Java, although I don't know everything. It is a extensively used program. I'm sure the evil coders will infiltrate via it.

    Perhaps you're confusing it with Flash Player? There was a security issue with it that seems to have gotten resolved.

    Hi Sam49,
    If you don't want the Java Updater reminder, disable it in Task Manager.
