  • "SunJavaUpdateSched" is not required to run at start up. Checks with Sun's Java updates site to see if newer Java versions are available. Visit http://java.sun.com or just run the Java Plug-In Control Panel

Important: Some malware camouflages itself as jusched.exe, particularly when located in the c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder, for example Virus.Win32.Tenga.a or IM-Worm.Win32.Yahos.an (detected by Kaspersky), and Sus/VB-BR (detected by Sophos). Therefore, you should check the jusched.exe process on your PC to see if it is a threat. We recommend Security Task Manager for verifying your computer's security.

This process is part of the java automated update system and checks for updates to the java runtime environment, disabling this process may cause you to miss important security patches making you computer vulnerable or at the least, causing you to miss the addition of new features to java meaning some java software may not function on your computer. It can be disabled without harming your computer and is not harmful while running.

I did a narrowing down of programs using MSconfig, and found this file was the source of my woes! somehow when it is checked as a startup item, my internet WILL NOT load, with it disabled, my internet runs like it always had (around 100Kbp/s not bad but not extreme) all I can say is that I will not trust it! it is not worth loosing internet! and who knows what else it will do!!! I will like the process I used to find that this was the problem.

I cant disable it on Win7 HP. Always I do - Apply, but the checkbox is allways checked after opening the same update panel.

Computer was running so slow, 2 mins to start up internet. The second I ended this process it worked perfectly.

If the file is listed %appdata% folder, then its probably a virus. It should stand in C:\Windows or in C:\Windows\System32
   
Takes memory but its safe, its for update java

Update scheduler for Java from Oracle.Calls home ones in a while at an interval and time the user can set.To avoid security holes in Java I think it's wise to keep it running.

I've had success jamming it (but not removing it) by simply starting windows unconnected to the internet modem. Then when the start page is sitting there with what I am searching for typed in, then I connect and the jusched box does not activate. Personally I do not like anything that I have not installed and will remove it when I've got time..
