Hello Gentlemen,
Far out, I get the pesky JAVA message every day to download the current updates!
Right when I am in the middle of writing a message, document or something, what 
a pain!

I wish I knew how to turn off that pesky Java Updates announcement thingy!

"I don't need no  steanking" Java Updates"!

With Best Regards,

  It's always been completely inaccessible for me, all the way back to JAWS 3.5.

    Subject: Updating Java

    Hello.  I am having a problem with Windows XP, JAWS 11.0.1430, and Java 
from Sun MicroSystems, the add on for Internet Explorer.  It is not telling me 
when an update is available.  I went online to get help as to how to change the 
setting so that it will tell me when an update is available, and download it 

    The article said to go to start menu/settings/control panel, and click on 
java.  When I do this, the dialogue box doesn't talk.  Furthermore, when I look 
at it with Insert+b or with the vertualized window, it shows no visible buttons 
or setting controls.  I got a sighted person to look at my screen, and the 
controls are visible and clickable for them.

    Has anyone found a way around this problem with JAWS, or is it necessary 
for a sighted person to change this setting?

    Incidentally, my automatic updates are turned on, and in the Add or Remove 
Programs section, "Show Updates" is checked.  However, if the controls are not 
set in the control panel, it doesn't matter.  These settings override those in 
the Add or Remove Programs section.

    Thank you in advance.
