I only deal with Java these days because my kids play Minecraft. A lot. Not as much as this dude, but still. And since Java receives security patches on a frequent basis (we’ll call it weekly, and we won’t be far off), I spend time updating Java more often than I’d like. I grew tired of the gratuitous attempts by Oracle to install Ask.com software for you in an opt-out manner. And I’m not alone: many of us have banded together to petition Larry Ellison to stop bundling Ask Toolbar with the Java installer. Sadly, only ~20,000 people of the Internet have signed up. So…. yeah.
Until then, here’s what you can do to prevent seeing that damned Ask.com screen during the installer.
Michael is a life saver.
