Keep Or Remove Jucheck.exe

» My computer is a couple weeks old, I have Windows 7 Home Premium. I got a request to allow Jucheck.exe to run. The request for it to run said that it was in Windows\System 32 and I searched for it and Jucheck.exe showed up in both Program Files and Windows\System 32; both identical, by the looks of them, same size (422kb / 432,128 bytes) , dates, etc. I also found it in C:\Windows\SysWOW64, though it was a different size (377 KB / 386,872 bytes).

» The jucheck.exe is the Java update verification process. This process will check on the internet for available updates for the Java software installed on your computer. If updates are available, it will notify you and/or manage the download and install of the updates. You should leave this process running in order to keep your Java up to date.

To remove the jucheck.exe, you can navigate to the Windows "Start" button, click the "Control Panel," and then click "Programs." > Locate the "Java" icon and double-click it to launch the Java Control Panel. > Click the "Update" tab and then click the checkbox next to the "Check for Updates Automatically" option to clear the check mark. > Click "OK" to save your changes. Once the automatic updates feature is disabled, jucheck.exe is also disabled completely. Alternatively, you can click Start (then Run if you have XP), type in "msconfig" (without quotes), and hit Enter. Click the "Startup" tab in the resulting screen, and uncheck Java Auto Updater.

EXE is a file extension for an executable file format. EXE files allow users to launch programs without needing additional software on the user's computer special software. Viruses(Exploit:Win32/CVE-2010-3333.AF) often reside to .exe files, which are then re-named to resemble common software packages. They can be running in the background, infecting or compromising the computer.

In case that an exe file is infected with virus or malware, the safest and quickest approach, without being bothered to reinstall Windows, is to use a professional repair tool. It is for this purpose that DLL Suite is released. DLL Suite allows our users to get rid of the exe virus infection annoyance once for all, just because it has a special feature of Fix EXE Virus.

  2. TERESA LEYS replied on March 19, 2013: » I think you completely missed the point. This message keeps coming up, every week or so, and we do not know why or whether we should allow the program to run.

    With so many viruses about we dont want to damage our machines.

    Do we need to run it and will there be any consequences if we do ?

  3. PAUL QUIST replied on March 21, 2013: » Jucheck is safe. It checks on a regular basis if you have the latest version of the Java virtual machine. The Java Virtual Machine is used by some websites and some applications on your computer. It is there to run java based applications.

    Now the problem that we share is that we continually get pop up from windows 7 to allow jucheck. Is there a way to stop these notifications ?

    How can I tell to my lovely Windows that Jucheck is safe and that he doesn't need to be afraid and give me this annoying pop-up ?

    click on the startup tab, check the jave update box, click apply

    Java will no longer auto update.

  5. STEPHEN MEDICRAFT replied on March 23, 2013: » I was having the same problem. The window would come up and ask me to allow jucheck.exe. I would click "no" and it would keep coming back! Last time I had two separate windows with the same message in them. Finally, I went into mycomputer and searched for "jucheck". The search did take a little while, but it came back with two different items. One from 2009 that was clearly associated with Java, and another from just last week that wasn't really giving me a clue what it was. I deleted this and emptied out the recycle bin. Then I went to the boxes that were asking me to accept jucheck.exe and clicked "no" and they finally went away!
