I guess I'm missing something ovbvious here but it sure feels weird - every time I boot the pc the Sun Java runtime environment installer keeps popping up! Yup, I already have it installed in my system.. There is nothing in Autostart that does this, as far as I can see. Have used StarOffice but uninstalled it, no difference!

Any ideas about how to get rid of the thing?!

Thanks

Did you just recently install JRE? If so, which version?

You should install the latest version which fixes some security problems, the uninstall all the others.

Well, uninstalled the old version and installed the latest - and the stupid installer still fires up when I boot! Just don't get it. I'll see if I can find something about this at java.com
