Java icon in system tray

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Wolverine in Michigan, Aug 1, 2009.

  1. Vista Home Premium w/all updates.

    I keep getting these little coffee cup icons popping up in my
    system tray, sometimes 2 or 3 at a time.

    I looked at my programs and I see the symbol for
    "Jave SE Runtime Enviornment 6 update 1" which was installed back in
    November 2007, but I've never seem them in the system tray until this month.

    As soon as I move my cursor over them they disappear. Why do these
    keep popping up and how do I stop them from popping up?

    Thanks for the help.

    It most likely means that IExplore.exe is accessing a a web site enabling Sun Java.

    BTW: You need to remove v6 update 1 and replace it with at least v6 update 14 (albeit v6
    update 15 is about to be formally released).
