We've learned how to disable automatic java updates, but whether we update Java manually or automatically, is there a way to make it less annoying?
Personally, I wouldn't mind Java updating automatically every day, if it would just stop bothering me about it.
- When Java thinks it's time to update, it won't leave you alone until you've done it.
- Java doesn't know that an update is an update and not a new installation - each version lives happily next to the previous ones on Windows.
- Since each update is a new installation, it won't remember any settings from previous installations: one second of attention failure might mean you've suddenly got a new toolbar in your browser. Also, auto updates might be back to default, meaning daily update checks.
Any takes on this? Is there a way to coexist with Java updates on Windows?
