How to stop Java update?

Healer
I unchecked the options of "Check for Updates Automatically" on the Java control Panel and then clicked on "OK". However every time I opened the Java Control Panel again, the option of "Check for Updates Automatically" still remained checked.

Then I went to select "Never Auto-Download" under JRE Auto-Download on the Advanced tab. It seemed to have done the similar job.

I still wonder why I can't have the option of "Check for Updates Automatically" remain unchecked. This scenario seems to occur on all Windows operating systems.

"msconfig" in Run for the recalcitrant. "Services", too. There are also any number of third-party apps to squelch what offends thee.

I did disable the Java service. Is that all what I need to do? Don't I still need to ensure that the option of "Check for Updates Automatically" be remained unchecked?

completely uninstall java.
it's a garbage language that shouldn't be used anyway.

A Mozilla-based browser, like Firefox (which I do), the NoScript add-on allows you to throttle Java scripts at will with the option, "Temporarily allow all this page".

It is best to know that Java and Javascript are no relation.

between Java and JavaScript. I know most web sites use JavaScript and some do use Java as well. I have designed some web sites that involve both languages.

with the FireFox. However, I have found it so inconvenient that I eventually disabled or uninstalled it because most web sites use JavaScript.

Although I've had some trouble keeping one or another Java function from auto-starting (because the settings seem to go back to the defaults with every update), I've always been able to kill them. Unfortunately, I'm stuck on a laptop with no Java installed for reference because the cable for my keyboard died, I believe you have found the three important bits to kill. (You might want to kill the Java quick start service, too.)

You might have a registry permissions problem (setting doesn't save) even if you are the Administrator. Or, you might have security-type software that thinks it knows better than you about having auto update turned on (setting get changed back).

The Sysinternals Autoruns app can help here, maybe by exposing a setting or by showing where you might not have have permissions to change a setting somehow.
