Stop/Kill/Destroy the frigging Java Update popup forever

Is your Citrix/RDS sessions constantly opens sneaky Java Update popup box? I know you tried log on as Administrator and disable the Java updates (Control Panal/Java settings). It didn’t help, isn’t? Well it supposed to disable the updates permanently. But it doesn’t.

What’s up with million update every month, Oracle??? I wish developer don’t develop in Java anymore. This is becoming annoying.

There is a registry settings that comes to help This actually works.

  1. Run RegEdit.exe
  2. Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy\
  3. Double click the key EnableJavaUpdate and change the value to 0.


    4.  Delete this key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\SunJavaUpdateSche
    5.  Reboot the server.

This above registry hack is for Windows Server 2008 R2 servers. If you got older or 32 bit OSes, replace the registry location with HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy\.

Enjoy the peacefulness. Smile
