Each time I get a Java security update, I have to remember to untick the box to install the yahoo toolbar browser plugin that they've decided, for some mad reason, is an important security feature of Java. Is there a way to get it to remember my choice, or to get the security updates without it? Or to educate Sun about what is and isn't a security update?


When you do, please let me know. I really don't need the Yahoo toolbar on my J2EE servers.


I never install java... I just copy it and manually set it to my classpath and other variables as needed to start the application.

Of course I do not get auto updates... then again.. maybe I do not want auto updates ! This ensures that I remain in control of my deployed environment and as a bonus... My toolbars are free of yahoo junk !

then again... that does snot really answer the question though
