What is jucheck.exe and why does it keep popping up? 

javaThe jucheck.exe is the Java update verification process. This process will check the internet for available updates for the Java software installed on your computer. If updates are available, it will notify you and/or manage the download and install of the updates. You should leave this process running in order to keep your Java up to date. 


FYI, Java is necessary to run many websites and programs on your computer, so the updates are important. (Also, leaving programs out-of-date can leave your computer susceptible to infectious bugs!) But if it bothers you i show you bellow how to remove from start up, just keep in mind you will need to update Java manually. Sometimes you will need to give consent in order for the update process to take place. If you see a window pop up like the one below, it is safe to click yes.
