Disabling Windows Java Update Scheduler

After installing Java JRE or SDK a behind the scenes updater will will start running. This process checks for jre updates and will popup for each user logging in giving them the chane to install. You can disable this per user by opening th Java control panel app and unchecking the check for updates box, but this is only for that logged in user. There is a separate process called jucheck.exe that still runs.

To stop it from asking anymore you must make a registry change.

64 bit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy\EnableJavaUpdate
Change value to 0

32 bit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy\EnableJavaUpdate
Change value to 0

Note: If you install a Java update or a newer release this key will be rewritten!!!!
