Disable annoying Java Update notification

If you’re sick of getting prompted to update Java, or if you have some web application like Banner that requires a particular version, you can use a simple registry hack to disable notification of available updates.

  1. Open the Registry Editor by going to the Start button and typing in regedt32.
  2. Navigate through to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy
  3. Change the value of EnableAutoUpdateCheck to 0 and the value of EnableJavaUpdate to 0.

Java should no longer prompt you for the annoying updates.
