MS Java -- Don't want the Update; Want to Kill it Off

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by Lady Dungeness, Jun 21, 2007.

  1. I'm being offered an update to MS Java Machine for my XP Home. I don't want
    it. I don't want MS Java at all. Once I saw some instructions on how to
    remove all of MS Java -- but I can't find them now.

    Is this the right group for me to ask how to do that? Presumably then the
    update would not be offered again.

    Who/what is offering you "an update to MS Java Machine"? What's the name or
    the KB article of this update?

    Is C:\Program Files\Sun Java <=this folder present on the machine?

  3. I just double-checked: Windows Update scans and gives me a list, including
    this:
    http://www.update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us

    816093: Security Update Microsoft Virtual Machine (Microsoft VM)

    I don't want the update and I don't want MS Java. I have unchecked the
    entires for MS Java in IE6 > Advanced Options. Do I understand correctly
    that as long as those entries are there, even unchecked, that there is MS
    Java still on my XP Home? If so, I'd like to kill it off.

    I'll wait to get Sun Java until I'm finished with this task.

  4. Yes, that is correct. Here's a link to Sun's kill off instructions:
    http://java.com/en/download/help/uninstall_msvm.xml
    You don't have to first kill off MS java and then get Sun java,
    but it will do no harm if you insist upon doing it that way.
    Method #2 is effective. MS java will be gone if you follow it.

  5. Thank you for the link to the instructions! I just prefer to have only one.
    I'll go to work on it now.

    That's MS Virtual Machine, not "MS Java Machine".

  12. Did I kill the wrong thing?
    I just want to use Sun's program.

  13. AFAIK you killed the right thing. You have Sun's JVM installed?
    http://www.java.com/en/
    The MS VM is gone? You said so yesterday. Then that's OK.

    PA Bear and I have a recollection of an individual signing herself <*(((><,
    with whom you seem to have a resemblance. She was in the Midwest.

  14. PA Bear has taken an unhealthy interest in who's who. I hear the CIA is
    still looking for some good agents.

    Thank you for confirming that I killed what I was aiming at. I do not yet
    have Sun installed; will do that, hopefully, later this afternoon.

    Have a great day.

    PS: I'm curious now -- in what way do I resembble a fish?
