1000 annoying popup prompts when updating Java

Recommended Posts

I started (on 64bit Win7) Java Update panel in START->Control Panel

Much to my surprise this leads to appox. 3215214521 warning popups from OA

which (even worse) cannot be stopped. There is only an "allow" and a "Block" button for each prompt but NOT an

"Install" checkbox which allows all subsequent popups.

See the attached snapshot of one of the popups:

This is really annoying. I could not stop them.

Can this be stopped/solved in the next release?

I already added javadl.sun.com in the "Domain" section but it didn't help.

It seems to me that it is not a firewall issue rather that a "program permission" issue.

What means "BITS" job (mentioned in the OA popup)?

What means "BITS" job (mentioned in the OA popup)?

The following is taken from this section http://www.emsisoft.com/en/info/oa/Domains.html#bits of the webhelp about BITS :) :

BITS protection

The Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) is a Windows component that uses idle bandwidth to transfer data between computers. Microsoft commonly uses BITS to deliver software updates through services like Windows Update. Other non-Microsoft applications such as Adobe, Java and Google also utilise BITS.

Unfortunately, BITS can also be used for malicious purposes. The Web Shield protects against the malicious use of BITS by alerting you when an Unknown BITS job is detected and offering you the choice to Allow or Block it.
