Update Java automatically?


Recommended Posts

Control Panel > Java > somewhere around the UI should have an automatically check for updates box.


Correct, its Control Panel>Java, click the update tab, tick the 'Check for updates automatically' click ok and you're done.

Personally I have no problems NOT having it checking for updates, as soon as I visit a site that needs a newer version it soon lets me know then I update it (plus its one less unnecessary thing running at startup).

doesn't it then load in your start-up thus resulting in memory being allocated for the program?
I have my check set for once a week which is the default and there is no application nor memory allocated for the program.


The way it works, I believe, is that at the prescribed time the check for the update is done and if an update is required then either the user is informed or the update is applied.
