Getting rid of jucheck.exe

I just bought this HP G62 laptop running windows 7 and it comes loaded with Java........every 20 minutes or so I get a pop-up from windows control asking permission for jucheck.exe to modify my system.

 

Does anyone know how can I effectively disable or get rid of this crap?

Re: Getting rid of jucheck.exe

You can let the Java update in and it will stop, or you can go to the control panel > programs and feature. Uninstall any Java stuff you find there.

 

 You will find that eventually you'll need Java, you'll be at a web site where it requires to run something and you'll be forced to install it again. It's not going to hurt anything to uninstall it for now.

Re: Getting rid of jucheck.exe

some websites needs java in order to be viewed, example, fecebook, it needs java to upload your pictures easily. some programs also requires java in order to run, ex: limewire, so uninstalling your java might affect your web browsing and some of your programs that needs java.

Re: Getting rid of jucheck.exe

Go to Control Panel and open Java control center. On the second tab is where you turn off auto-updating.

Re: Getting rid of jucheck.exe

Mine does the same thing.  When I try to delete it it brings up the message do you want jucheck to take over computer.  Its the Trojans defense mechanism to prevent me from deleting it.  I'm frustrated....

Re: Getting rid of jucheck.exe

Hi:

 

What I would try is to launch the MSCONFIG utility and go to the startup tab. If you see the jucheck listed there and checked, just uncheck it, hit apply, Ok and restart your PC.

 

If it was there you now disabled that program from running on startup and you shouldn't be bothered by it anymore.
