All comments about jusched.exe:
It's Sun Java's automatic update scheduler. It periodically starts another process that check for updates for the Jav VM. David G.
You can disable it with jucheck.exe in the same directory. You usually dont need the scheduler. Lucas B.
It's unnecessary and annoying. It slows your PC down. Kaaos
Open Java Plugin from WinXP's Control Panel, click Updates tab, uncheck the option to check for updates Rob H.

It corrupts memory and slows down the PC and changes passwords and makes things run slow. No link to delete it! I know more
The jusched.exe automatic update scheduler is relatively new [j2re1.4.2_04] and by default is loaded set to check for java updates from Sun every month after installation. The process is nearly always sleeping, but eats up 2.4 Mb of RAM . Rare problems when it attempts to phone home for updates. Default behavior easily changed through the Control Panel - Java Plug In - Update tab - uncheck "Check for Updates Automatically" and be sure to press the "Apply" button before closing the applet.. Can also be disabled in registry HKLM \SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run . Thomas M.
Java update scheduler from Sun Microsystems. Not dangerous, just wastes memory. Bert Q.
Keep my java update quicker. It good if you use alot of java. Justin

It is simply an automatic update feature. If you want it, keep it if you don't want it, disable it. Martin Hanson
2.5mb memory, doesnt even take 1s cpu time in days...so no problem (and it's not dangerous) Cen
Its a pain in the tail :( Turn off auto update! smaxx
It's a memory and resource hog Barney Fife
Could possibly be exploited to allow access to a system. Aka Trojans Port Sniffers would be looking for a way to use it as an exploit. Start makeing programs that tell you what their doing and why their doing it. Sir_EOT

If you wish to disable this prosses the easiest way is to do it from the system configuration utility. For those of you who do not know how to get there Win XP: Help and suport, tools, system configuration utility. Star Jones
I disabled it, just because I don't these "automatic" updates. There are enough with windows as it is. And if it works don't fix it.
Java Autoupdate. If you don't want it, Control Panel - Java Plugin - Updates tab, uncheck the option for automatic updates wise_guybg
Can cause WinXP to hang on shutdown. Best bet is to disable auto updates and peridically check for updates manually. TopDog
What's weird about it is that it runs very rarely - just pops up out of nowhere... ballslap

Comes along with Opera Browser (and other Sun Java products). It is necessary to give Opera the same possibilities as Internet Explorer (but does not have the very serious bug with the mouse scroll bar that can invoke whatever script on whatever site (use the PUSH BUTTONS of the mouse, not the scroll button). VAN BELLE Jean Marc
when i start up computer and do NOT close this exe my pc crashes for some reason kenny
We always recommend against having any software updating itself automatically, even if it prompts the user before applying updates. Stay in control of your PC and disable this task as follows : double-click on the Java plug-in icon in the Control Panel, go to the Update tab and uncheck "Check for updates automatically", click APPLY - this will disable JUSCHED from starting at boot-up. If you want to update Sun Java at a later stage, simply go back to the same Java plug-in icon in the Control Panel, to the "Update" tab, and click the Update Now button. SeanT
I found linked with Trojan Byte.Verify, a memory leeching sleeze of an application. Unsecure and very exploitive of your system without manual initialization. Can also disable using "msconfig" in RUN menu. Go to startup tab and uncheck. yohannes_
Easy to disable; good for development/test machines; should be turned off on production servers as most production environments would not have open internet access to allow this to run anyway. RichM

Creates application error on start-up. Jack Bennett
As you disable jusched please take a look at CACHE tab and see how much sensitive data Java is caching in your computer without your knowlege. Disable it too. Roitberg
I discovered jusched.exe running when I was alerted for having a virus on my system. The virus was only a spyware, bypassing the IE program execution prompt. I immediately turned off the internet connection started the virus checkr and checked the process table. jusched was running and two empty IE windows were open with the title "jusched". Must be some funny coincidence... Maybe it was triggered somehow johannes
All part of fun in the Sun -- but if you don't want to go chasing Java version conflicts (yes, they do happen), switch it off ! RewStar

To save confusion, the link in the control panel to get to the Java Plug In (and disable the auto-update), is through the "Other Control Panel Options" link on the left hand side under the "See Also" menu. Once you have clicked on the "Other Control Panel Options" menu, you should be able to see the "Java Plug-In" listed there. Click on it and go to "Update" and untick the "Check for updates automatically box". This should solve the problem. This is for Win XP. For Win 2K e.t.c. you will be able to find the "Java Plug-In" listed somewhere else in your control panel. Good Luck : ) Dodder

Well, from my experiences it is harmless unless you consider not being able to load certain programs, or having games crashing while it is running in the background harmless. Disable it, it's pretty much a worthless resource hole. And for those others that automaticly assume because it is from SUN it's not harmful or can cause no problems, please don't be so ignorant and realize you can't trust programs just because they are from a known named corp.

Sun Java Update Scheduler - jusched.exe is a process installed alongside Sun Microsystem's Java2 suite and, and checks for/installs Java updates. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated
My jusched.exe just popped up after I was stricken by a virus. I have cleaned my XP SP1 system manually by going through msinfo32, regedit and msconfig. Deleted all viral files including those hidden in temp and prog_files_common directories. I have no Java icon in my control panel so this jusched.exe is very suspect because it sits in my %windows%\system32 path measuring 160,676 bytes timestamped 8/29/2002. I can't find anywhere why its starts - none in HKLM/HKLU...Windows/CurrentVersion/Run nor in the startup folders but it starts at boot up. I just renamed it for safety reasons.  See also: Link Loloy D
thanks dodder!! but, i can´t believe it!!, i did what you say, in other control panel options i only have two icons: 1) about the sound efects and 2) about symantec update(the antivirus norton of symantec), so, could you help me???, please don´t think i am a fool or something, my little problem i that, i don´t have the java icon in my control panel, well, that is what i think.... max.
Dangerous ! There is spyware which uses the name "jusched.exe". You can identify it by looking in the system32 folder. There is a hidden file with the name "jushed.exe". Terminate the jushed.exe process in the task manager and delete this file ! (You may need to terminate the real jushed.exe and the backdoor jushed.exe cause they use the same process name) David
Nicht weiter gefährlich, benötigt bei mir (NT5.1) 72K und max. 1,8 Mb dazu ~450 Kb virtueller Speicher. 1 Thread, 1UserObject und ~25 Handles auf Objekte, die ich nicht (den Datenstrom) parsen kann. Dangerous onyl if the update files are corrupt or not completely tested. - AutoUpdate... always the same prob. .::TRON::.
Extreme Caution! Can corrupt Partition table. Two machine with extende drives had the extended drive Partition table overwritten during the course of an 'update'. I don't care if it's Sun software, it breaks machines severe. Quacks like a duck, is a duck. Delete the infection - updater now! Blitzenn

If you ever use Java, you HAVE to leave this enabled. Unless of course you plan on manually checking all the time, then by all mean disable it. Just don't be stupid and forget to check at least bi-weekly. It's very important to keep your VM patched. Java has served as a virus gateway on several occasions. Stinky

It's unecessary and slows down the computer, it can also crash the computer while running programs that using high amounts of memory because it randomly checks for updates.

Not dangerous but annoying. Anytime software is installed it should tell you that "whatever".exe will run, and get you to "opt-in". Most of this crap isn't anything you need, at least not all the time. Whenever I boot I terminate at least 15 processes so they don't tie up resources. NotSteve

Java Update CHEDuler by Sun Microsystems, comes installed with java - This process is considered harmless as long as the process executable runs from your java [bin] directory. As java update scheduler it can be permanently disabled through the windows java settings (control panel- java). If this process is shown as running from anywhere else, it is most likely a process cloaked virus and it's time to get yourself a better firewall, virus scanner, and most importantly a new approach to using the internet. Mike Kamermans
Under normal cirscumstances, this is the Java Updater, just like what people is saying. You can always deactivate the update checker using the Java Control Panel, which is the javacpl.exe app in the same folder, under the 'bin' folder on your Java installation folder. Go to the Update tab, and uncheck the related checkbox there. Done! You don't even need to mess with msconfig for that. DavidCS

Unless it's been used in a recent attack jusched.exe by itself is not harmless. However, as there are many java viruses/worms, this program could download and install an infected update.

Sun finds bugs in Java that are security holes, they fix them, release a new version, you don't get the update because you wanted to save (only 2mb!) of RAM, so you still have the hole and somebody exploits it and gets in. Get a grip, it is harmless, disable it if you want to. David

It is the Java Update Scheduler. My computer was running out of virtual memory on a daily basis. In task manager, under the processes tab, jusched.exe was always at the top, with memoory usage over 600,000 K. and my commit charge was maxed out. Once I terminated the process, things went back to normal. It seemed to use more and more memory as the day goes on. So I disabled it in the Java Control Panel. Jonathan

Not a direct threat, but may cause problems due to imposed updates. Even after disabling updates via the java control panel applet, inevitably, updates are re-enabled at some later time. Have tested this on dozens of XP and Vista computers. Java records the updates enabled/disabled state for each user of the computer. No builtin mechanism to enable/disable for all users of the computer. Not IT admin friendly since cannot control through normal policy. Have had to resort to other policy solutions in order to have control of java updates.  See also: Link jusched

Many websites, even Java.com and Java.Sun.com suggest the process mentioned here: go to the control panel, open Java Plug-in, select Update tab, uncheck "Check for Updates Automatically". It didn’t work for me as I found out every morning when I cleaned out my temp files. You can check by going to Start, Run, type in the command %temp%, and look a the least of temp files. It'll be there. Instead, in XP at least, use the system config utility. Go to Start, help& support, then tools, click on the startup tab and scroll until you find it. Then just uncheck it. Click apply and reboot or no Clare

It's no harm, but can be removed from start up in order to speed up PC. Pasan Indeewara
I hate auto updating, but Vista now will not let you toggle this to off in the control panel. So go to javacpl.exe in the application directory, run as admin and turn off auto updates. Wes
from java , makes my firefox crash Kuldar Persenöör
It's still in my processes after disabling auto update and restarting. sovereign
I was getting a ton of brower re-directs, even to the point where if you entered an address in the bar, but didn't put in the full http:// on it, it would still be re-directed. Once I quarantined jusched.exe, the re-directs stopped. I use the WOT add-on for firefox, which luckily stopped most of the sites the re-directs sent me to... so it was only a nuisance, but for someone without an incoming http blocker or some other program running interferance, those re-directs could cause big problems.

this process is a java script updater. I disabled this in the control panel also disabled it in the msconfig under run but it still runs on boot up dont like programs that do what they want jave programmers need to get it right or ill just not use the damn thin hated it
Blocked my sharefolder in a workgroup .After removal from registry & task manager , the system back to normal. Anti-jusched.exe
Interesting forum. The sole purpose of jusched.exe appears to be to run jucheck.exe occasionally to check for updates. You could avoid whatever security hole it opens up by running, and still keep Java updated, by disabling it and running jucheck directly. You could do this manually, but then you have to remember to do so. The How-To Geek (see link below) suggests running jucheck.exe as a scheduled task once a month, and gives detailed instructions. He gives Vista instructions. To open Scheduled Tasks in XP: Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Scheduled Tasks.  See also: Link BillFB
Only Uses 2.5 Mb of memory and probably a couple seconds of cpu time...id rather keep my java upto date personally than gain 2.5mb of memory Jake
Java Update Scheduler - Macht Updates in regelmäßigen Abständen Lynx92
automatic schedule updater for java - harmelss low resources 2mgs in hybernation. Leave active need resources buy more RAM cheapo! Arniceous
Java Update Scheduler (J-U-Sched) ... useless tool that randomly checks for java updates. eats up 2 - 8MB of memory for basically.. well.. NOTHING.. deactivate it in the control panel (Java icon, update tab, uncheck "Check for Updates Automatically") Patrik
jusched.exe does not disable in vista if you "disable" updates. To disable jusched.exe in Vista, go to C:\WINDOWS\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin and right click on javacpl.exe ... click on Run as Adminstrator ... THEN disable the updates, and jusched.exe will finally be disabled and not run on startup. angelic
Really not something to worry about, its a Sun Java updater to keep your java up to date.  See also: Link groovyPost
Uninstalled sun java, reinstalled and jusched.exe will not go, regardless of unchecking CHECK FOR UPDATES AUTOMATICALLY thus Sun Java has been deleted.. Nice buggy crap to further ruin your computer. Better luck next version.  See also: Link Hostile_Scout

Java update scheduler, checks for newer versions of java  See also: Link Neil Crow
No matter how many times or ways you disable it in Vista (including thorugh it's gui or msconfig or registry), it will continue to restart itself to do you the favor of continuously popping up asking for permission to download updates. These symptoms are indentical to those of spyware (unwanted popups that you can't permanently disable, and as such should be treated as spyware and deserves the "5" rating. John

Java process, im running it on Win 7, but it slows down computer. i simply open taskmanager, and "processes" tab and stop it. MalkKnight
despite unchecking it in the startup menu and disabling the the update in the Java panel justsched continues to start after every reboot.
Java Update Scheduler - runs even though I have the "Auto Update" check box unchecked. Checking it, then apply, then unchecking it works, the process goes away System_Macker

It's just a Java Update Scheduler. Doesn't hurt anything to close it. It will free up some memory. Freakshow
allowed a worm to bypass security.. took 2 days to find all it's hiding locations.. disable was not effective had to manually remove the file from all locations myz-28
i typed msconfig into the run progam thing on the start menu, and disabled jucheck and it has stopped it :) but also, if you have norton internet security you can block the update checker (jucheck) and the update scheduler (jusched) quite simply! Stan
In the Java installed folder, run javacpl.cpl and in the update tab, uncheck the 'Check for Update Automatically' will kill this process. Ranger
sets to run automatically w/no prompt or warning. in some systems, cannot turn off! j

Tried to disable through the java "properties" screen - no matter what it would start up again when the system restarted. Manually removed in three separate locations. Maybe not a security threat - but very annoying. Meik
linked to trojan.Byteverify and exploitable. I respect Sun, but this file makes me nervous. Unless you are a Java developer or run Java apps, I would recommend disabling this on startup though msconfig. hyperthread
Blocked with my firewall. Freakin thing runs even when your running a game. swev
Java update scheduler - Enabled by default without asking and can potentially create compatibilty issues thru forced updates fff
Updates Java, easy to end, Doesn't harm when ending. IAmJesus
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.. John
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.  See also: Link
Takes memory but its safe, its for update java 4544
If the file is listed %appdata% folder, then its probably a virus. It should stand in C:\Windows or in C:\Windows\System32
Computer was running so slow, 2 mins to start up internet. The second I ended this process it worked perfectly.  See also: Link Tycho
I cant disable it on Win7 HP. Always I do - Apply, but the checkbox is allways checked after opening the same update panel. Danijela S.
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.  See also: Link Drummerman
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. Bob
