This is a bit lengthy, the problem involves the later versions of Java (Java 17)in the Fall of 2009.
I have gone so far as to post this problem to the Java Website, but they have a policy of not
replying.
At this point I have removed Java from my computer.



System Information
Dell computer\processor Intel ®Core™ i7CPU 920 @2.67 GHz
Memory 4.00GB
System type 64 bit Operating System
Microsoft Vista Home Premium
Service Pack 2

Note: On November 21, 2009 I reinstalled the Windows Vista Operating System, this did not solve the issue described below involving Java


Problem with Java

in C (os) there are 2 folders
program files
program files (X86)



When I download from the Java Web site
Java 64 bit edition
It installs into the following folder
in the X86 Program Files folder

and the update installs a second version of the software in the Program Files folder (all by itself, with no input from me)


It then automatically updates itself
and the update installs a second version of the software
in the Program Files folder (all by itself, with no input from me)
It installs the Java 32 bit edition into
The following folder
Program Files

In Installed Programs
There are these two versions of Java reflected as installed

These Java programs then corrupt
I get this message every 5 minutes stating that Java wants to Update.

In control panel if I click on Java\update\uncheck update\it is useless\
it just resets itself to check for updates\after I apply\O.K.

I can not turn off the automatic update feature
in Java because the Java application does not allow this option.
If I do all the steps to turn off the automatic update feature/on reboot to Java update is set to automatic once again.
Java attempts to update every 5 minutes/ if I click allow update, 5 minutes later the application requests to update again.




Java

11/20/09 java version 17 install on 11/15 it checks for update the 15th of each month


the problem is that the computer installs a second version of java
a 32 bit application when it does the update/
the computer already has a 64 bit edition installed\
i think it puts the 32 bit application in the X86 Program Files folder

in C (os)
program files
program files (X86)
when I imported favorites etc. from old computer windows
included the old system files for Java, etc.
and now those old system files are updating themselves\
result is two versions of Java on the computer

11/02/2009
I uninstalled the 2 versions of Java on this computer in Programs and Features
I reinstalled Java version 16 for 64 bit computers.
In control panel if I click on Java\update\uncheck update\it is useless\
it just resets itself to check for updates\after I apply\O.K.

I tried to find help at User Forums\there is none\egghead café does not even
allow Java as a forum
I looked on the Java website\no help there\i used their Java Complaint applic\
Java says that they will not respond to my email, since they get millions of emails.


10/31/2009
Java to access go to control panel\ 32 bit options\java\click on java\ update tab\turn off automatic update
I had update turned off in crash user \and had update turned on in ADMIN user
So I was getting daily remainders to update JAVA
When I allowed it to update\the very next day it would want to update again



On November 21, 2009 I reinstalled the Windows Vista Operating System,
in C (os)
program files
program files (X86)
th4se two file sets were reinstalled with the operating system.

I deleted the Java software before the reinstall of the OS.
The problem was that Java was still asking to update, and the update installs a second version of the software in the Program Files folder (all by itself, with no input from me)
