Slowing PC down. Disabling nearly impossible.
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.

Best practices for resolving jusched issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with jusched. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the jusched.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries. A unique security risk rating indicates the likelihood of the process being potential spyware, malware or a Trojan.
