Removing Java Update jusched.exe as a Startup Program
This section provides a tutorial example on how to remove Java Update jusched.exe as a startup program from the Windows registry.
The next startup program to look at is the Java Update jusched.exe. I think that jusched.exe was installed when I installed the JDK 1.6.0.
Based on the HijackThis report, Yahoo installed GoogleToolbarNotifier.exe as a startup program in the HKCU hive of the Windows registry:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] "C:\Program Files\Java \jre1.6.0_03\bin\jusched.exe"
When jusched.exe is running, you will see no icon in the system tray, the right hand side of the taskbar. jusched.exe is running quietly as a background process. I see it listed in on the Processes tab on Task Manager.
Do I need to run jusched.exe as a startup program? I don't think so. I don't need jusched.exe to check Java updates. I can go to Sun Java Web site to look at it myself. So I am removing jusched.exe as a startup program.
1. End the running process jusched.exe with Task Manager.
2. Run "regedit.exe" and local the registry key: "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run"
3. Export this "Run" registry key to a registry file: HKCU_Startup.reg as a backup.
4. Select the registry value "SunJavaUpdateSched" and press Delete key to remove this value.
5. Restart the system. Java Update jusched.exe is not in the startup program list anymore.
