    Default Updating Java

    I came across a similar post to this one, dating back to 2008, but it's only just come up for me.

    I tried installing an update to Java from 6.33 but I got far too many messages from ZoneAlarm telling me that "FUI" was trying to access files and processes on my system. Not knowing what FUI was I clicked endlessly to deny access.

    I'm running Windoze XP (yes, I know it's no longer supported by Micro Soft) SP3, with ZoneAlarm Free and McAfee VirusScan Enterprise.

    The following are SOME of the messages I got from ZoneAlarm:

    FIU us trying to communicate with ... by opening its process

    C:\Program Files\McAfee\VirsuScan Enterprise\Mcshield.exe
    C:\Program Files\McAfee\VirsuScan Enterprise\mcfeann.exe
    C:\Program Files\DeviceVM\Browser Configuration Utility\BCU.exe
    C:\Program files\Common Files\Java\Java Update\jusched.exe
    C:\Program Files\McAfee\Shstat.exe
    C:\Program Files\MiscrosoftOffice\Office14\EXCEL.EXE
    C:\Program files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform\OSPPSVC.ex e

    All I could find about FIU is that it is trying to access system and internet, and isn't a problem unless you're updating Java. I've never had this problem before and have update Java many times.

    Any clues would be helpful.

    If you trust the Java updater you should allow this in ZA. The combination of a very old version of Java on an old system may be trigger ZA warnings.
    Also it may be depending on the ZA version used as you don't provide any details about it I cannot comment.

    Nothing to be worried about if your installer is from a trusted source.
