    Default Jucheck.exe

    I get this the last week its is Jucheck.ext, Sun microsystems, I think it is java and I don't know it I should download it. It says an update is Available. When I hit the icon for java on the bottom of the screen it says a new version is available. Should I trust it. After all was there a hacker or something going on with Java? It comes up when I start my laptop as a popup in the center of the screen

    Now a days, most home computer users don't even need Java installed on their computer. At one time, Java was needed for websites to be displayed properly. That's not the case anymore. I had uninstalled Java several months ago and have found no need for it.

    It is being advised to either uninstall or disable Java. To uninstall Java:

    1. Please download JavaRa (Stable version 2.1) to your desktop.
    2. Right click and choose Extract all to place into it's own folder.
    3. Double click on the JavaRa-2.1 folder (if not open)
    4. Double click on JavaRa folder to open.
    5. Right click on JavaRa (Application), choose Run as administrator
    6. Click on Remove Java Runtime


    If you do choose to keep Java, you can update using the same program as follows:

    1. Double click on the JavaRa-2.1 folder (if not open)
    2. Double click on JavaRa folder to open.
    3. Right click on JavaRa (Application), choose Run as administrator
    4. Click on Update Java Runtime
    5. Click on Download and install latest version
    6. Click on Java Manual Download link.
    7. On the web page that opens, choose your Windows platform (32 or 64-bit) found under Windows
