Do you want to disable Java update notifications when you turn on your computer? In this tutorial I’ll explain how to do it.
Why do these notifications arrive? When you turn on your computer, the Windows operating system automatically runs the Java Auto Updater program. It is this software that notifies you to notify you that a Java update is available for installation.
Fortunately, there is a way to disable update notifications without uninstalling Java.
How to disable Java notifications with Windows 7
- If you use a computer with Microsoft Windows 7, Vista or XP, try the following steps.
- Click on Start at the bottom left or press the button with the Windows symbol on the keyboard.
- Then type msconfig in the Search programs and files field.
- Note. If you have Windows Vista select the item Run on the Start menu, type msconfig in the box and send.
- Now click on msconfig in the results list.
What is msconfig used for? The msconfig command allows you to change the system configuration and tell the operating system which software you want to load when the computer is turned on.
- The system configuration window opens.
- In the upper menu there are several items (General, Start Options, Services, Start, Tools).
- In this case you have to select the Start (or Startup) tab.
- The list of the software executed automatically when the computer is turned on appears.
- To disable the Java update, remove the check next to Java (TM) Platform Updater.
- Then click on Apply and Ok to confirm the choice.
You have disabled the Java update.
Now you should no longer receive other notifications from Java when you turn on your PC.
