    I just got a popup saying that java is ready to update. But when I searched it said that Java was hacked, and I also saw something saying that java update checker is a virus. Is all this true and should I update java.

    Java updates?

    I got a notification on my system at boot up this morning wanting me to install a java update.

    IIRC, in Win 7 it was suggested that java should not be run at all.

    Is java on Win 10 safe and should I allow updates to Java?

    Java auto update problem


    I do not have Java installed in my computer.
    I googled this one for you. Hope it helps a little.

    The following is an excerpt from Java own publication :
    What is Java Update and how do I change the update schedule?


    Change Automatic Update Settings
    1. Find and launch the Java Control Panel
    2. Click the Update tab to access the settings.
    3. To enable Java Update to automatically check for updates, select the Check for Updates Automatically check box.
      To disable Java Update, deselect the Check for Updates Automatically check box.

  4. Should I update Java???

    Java 8, IE 11.11, Windows 10 - Java won't verify. Java control panel won't open.

    Hi,

    Have you downloaded the latest Java version? Let's try to eliminate software conflicts by performing a clean boot. We suggest that you try accessing Java Control Panel in a clean boot environment and see if it makes any difference. If you are able to access
    Java Control Panel in a clean boot environment, the issue might be caused by application or service interferences. You may refer to this

    Microsoft article
    for more information. Follow the steps provided in the article on how to determine what is causing the problem by performing a clean boot.

    We also suggest that you start your PC in safe mode with networking, then try to verify Java in Internet Explorer. To start your PC is safe mode with networking, follow these steps:

    • Click on the Start button, then select Settings .
    • Select Update & security > Recovery .
    • Under Advanced startup, select Restart now.
    • After your PC restarts to the Choose an option screen, select
      Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings >
      Restart.
    • After your PC restarts, you'll see a list of options. Select 5 or F5 for
      Safe Mode with Networking.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
