Hello all.

I am slowly being driven crazy by the little orange Java pop up requesting me to update. For starters when i initially tried to update nothing happened. Since then every 30 mins or so this pest arrives on my screen/toolbar.

I have tried to deactivate the update by unclicking the box in the Java 'area' but that is instantly overridden and refuses to stick no matter how i try to find a way round.

Please may someone have a solution to this very very tiresome problem.

Many thanks and regards to all.
John

Wow, that's strange. I just updated yesterday or the day before, no problems for me, I wish I could help except to say, I uninstall and reinstall when this happens to me. Wait for more advise before you try this fix,Alan

Hi

The latest version of Java is V6 update 12.
If the Java update has got itself into a tangle you could try removing and then reinstalling it using the following steps.
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Version 6 and save it to your desktop.
  • Scroll down to where it says "Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 12...allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Select your Platform: "Windows".
  • Select your Language: "Multi-language".
  • Read the License Agreement, and then check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • Click Continue and the page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation and save the file to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove Programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check (highlight) any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u12-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.
