    Default Automatic Updates...How to stop them?

    The title is self-explanatory. I can't stop Java 6.0.200 from updating it's self.

    In Windows there is an entry in the registry that starts the update program: jusched.exe

    Get a tool like autoruns.exe and turn that entry off by unchecking it.
    Caution: Changing the registry can be very BAD.

    Yes, I could hack the registry or use msconfig to stop it from loading. But I want to know why unticking the box "Automatically Check for Updates" won't work in Java's control panel. The check mark reappears whenever the control panel is opened.
    This is on Win 7 Pro and FF 3.6.3

    There is a service/process which change these settings. I'm not remember the service name exactly. Check on startup services.

    What operating system you are using. If windows then You can simple choose which updated to install. I assume you have select in java panel to install auto updates. In update setting you can set only to download not to install.
