Very Irritated Problem with Java Auto Updater
by hunghung1 - 9/15/12 3:26 PM
For several weeks or longer, whenever I turn on the computer, regardless of whether I am online or offline, a flashing icon appears at the bottom of the screen. When I click it, a popup appears and gives the message:
"Do you want to allow the following program to make change to this computer?
Program name: Java Auto Updater
Verified publisher" Sun Microsystem, Inc."
Even after clicking "yes", I still get the flashing icon the next time I turn on the computer (usually just a few hours later), regardless of whether I am online or offline.
I go to the Update tab on the Java Control Panel and UNcheck the "Check for Update Automatically" box. A "Java Update - warning" popup appears and I click "Never Check" (instead of "Check Monthly").
I then click "Apply" and then "OK" on the Update tab and close the Control Panel window. However, when I open the Update tab again, the "Check for Update Automatically" box is still checked!!!
Is there hijacking and how do I fix this problem?
