Recently, I allowed Sun MicroSystems (first time ever) to make a Java update change to my PC as well as allowing future permission requests. This came about as a by-result from running ComboFix as advised due to another more pressing issue.

 

Just now, my control panel asked my permission to allow jucheck.exe to make changes to my PC's hard drive with a new version of Java which is ready to be installed.

 

Verified publisher: Oracle America, Inc.

File origin: hard drive on my PC.

 

It's the first time I've been asked about Java where Sun MicroSystems isn't the named publisher.

 

I've search engine'd jucheck and Oracle America and have come up with everything from trojan to valid.

 

General/Details/Certification Paths can be provided if needs be.

 

Pls advise.

Hello -

Sun MicroSystems and Oracle both supply legal downloads of Java -

 

Download Security Check by Screen317 from HERE
* Save it to your Desktop.
* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
Note: If a security program requests permission to access the Internet, allow it to do so.

 

Thank You -

Thanks for your response noknojon,

 

 

Online info varies about Oracle. Some advise if its origin is from C-drive then it's always valid. Some say it's always outright trojan.

 

Anyway, here's the checkup txt...

So should I allow Oracle's Java update to run in this case? Pls advise and be patient as I am on a steep learning curve. Thank-you.

Hi -

It should be OK to allow the Java update to current, Version 7 Update 17, if offered.

 

Minor points - With Windows7 x64, you should be using I.E.9, not  I.E.8 - This should have been offered in Windows Updates.
A link to Adobe to update your Reader to XI (11.0.0.02) - Note that Reader will not Auto Update.
Untick the Chrome Offer as it is not part of the download (just advertising / promotion).
Or visit Adobe - Adobe Reader : For Windows and select Adobe Reader 11.0.02 update - All languages 1.5 MB 2/20/2013 

 

Is there any Antivirus involved with "Symantec Norton Online Backup NOBuAgent.exe" or just Online Backup alone ?

You have Microsoft Security Essentials listed as your main Antivirus, so Symantec should have no A/virus involved -

 

Thank You -

Thank-you for you response.

 

I don't use IE but will keep your suggestion in mind. Will take a look at Windows Updates as I have it on my PC but not Microsoft Updates.

 

Adobe sorted. Many thanks.

 

Oracle sorted. Many thanks.

 

NOBuAgent.exe was a pre-installed (I think?) program which would open up once in a while to offer me Norton/Symantec online back-up service for a free trial period or "ask me later" option. Probably part of HP Advisor package or a brief flirtation with a Norton/Symantec free downloaded service which I soon uninstalled. NOBu has also been uninstalled. Again, many thanks.

 

Just looking at Windows Updates now. Does Microsoft Updates supercede it in my case or needn't I worry because it doesn't appear as a program on my PC?

Hi -

Windows Updates are basically what I am talking about, this is your M/soft updater also.

When you download Windows Updates, this will include any M/soft programs you need to keep you updated.

 

Even if you never use Internet Explorer or similar programs, you must remember that you do have a Microsoft based computer -

 

I only copied the line "Symantec Norton Online Backup NOBuAgent.exe" from the report above, and wondered if there was any Norton programs installed.

 

Norton (Symantec) or McAfee often partener with some OEM computers to Preinstall their programs and you can remove or keep them -

You can look for (Google) " Norton uninstaller " if the program is not used -

 

Please ask for more help with any of these type of items if you do want me to link any other items -

 

Thank You -

Yes this is safe. Oracle bought Sun Microsystems a few years ago.
