    Default Java Quickstart Messages

    Since updating my Zonealarm Free, each time I go on the internet, I get a Zonealarm message saying that Java Qickstart is trying to access the internet. Is this something I should allow and set Zonealarm accordingly?

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:8.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)

    In Program Control / Programs right click on Java Quick Starter and select Properties and you'll see
    Java(TM) Quick Starter binary JQSNOTIFY.EXE.
    Under Version tab,version information it's part of Sun Microsystems, Inc..

    " Allow "

    It's listed in Firefox under Add-ons Extentions.

    brbrown, Your Welcome

    Just remember, If you're really not sure what to do, it's best to click Deny. You can always grant permission later by going to the Programs panel.

    You don't really need it, and you can disable it in Control panel, Java applet, Advanced tab, click the + next to Miscellaneous, clear the box for Java quick starter.

    Thanks JR. What does it do though? Since my last post, I read on the internet that it was used to help display web pages. If it is disabled would that not create a problem? Brian

    It's supposed to speed up the opening of java applets and applications
    http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/te...tures/jqs.html

    But, like the equivalent Acrobat Reader
    Speed Launcher (you can disable that from the startup tab in msconfig)
    that is supposed to speed up opening Acrobat Reader, disabling it has no noticeable effect, on my system, at least. I don't have any java applets or applications, and only use java runtime components
    if
    they
    happen to be
    used on a web page I happen to visit; I've not had any problems with that.
    Unless your'e very sensitive to things taking one or two milliseconds
    more or less to start up, I really don't think you'd notice.
    As far as I'm concerned, the
    fewer of such things are set to run in the background the better.

    Many thanks for that JR. I understand now and agree with your comments. I will disable it and see how I go. Thanks again. Best wishes. Brian
