Java installer Adware – too many web browser toolbars!

So Java is prompting you to update but I am here to tell you to be careful of the “Adware” they include on install. When updating or installing Java be sure to uncheck the optional installs boxes for Ask Toolbar and Ask Search engine: (click on image for larger screenshot)

Java and many other programs often partner with third party software providers and by default automatically install “Adware.” If you don’t watch for these options then your computer will be full of useless software. Remember before you click “Next, Next, Next” always read what you are clicking next to.
