Over the past months I have been hearing more and more complaints, about the frequency of Java updates being too often, hence beginning to annoy more and more people. I wasn’t quite there yet, but given time I got annoyed too. So I decided to disable the automatic update feature that comes with Java. Soon after I was presented with another popup box, telling me that Java needed to update (again). I thought maybe I didn’t uncheck the box, and was met by a checked checkbox, when I opened the property page. I unchecked it, and was asked if that was what I really really wanted, and clicked yea to that. So, back to work… At least for a little while. The same popup was once again presented, and this time I was certain I had unchecked. When I opened up the property page, I was once again met by a checked checkbox. WTH!
The screendumps below show how I click the property pages, on the icon in the tray.
I then get the property page, where I’m met by the checked checkbox.
No biggy, I will just have to uncheck and hit ‘Apply’…
I then select the ‘Do not check’ in the warning popup
And then some magic happens. Because when I open up the property page once again (w/o doing anything else on the system) I am met by a checked checkbox.
How do you sleep at night you “&%¤§#”&%/ crappy programmer!
