It would definitely be less stable, and far more annoying.(part1 of 3)Just for other users who might want Java: I imagine that some people finding this question have come here not because they don't want the Java update, but because they are annoyed by the security warning taking over their whole computer interrupting them from what they are doing and having to click yes or no - which is why I came here.
Actually this problem is due to the control panel requiring administrator privileges to allow the Java control panel to save your settings (it hasn't been fixed for ages, thanks to Sun Microsystems).

I've installed Java on Windows Vista, and every day I get a Vista security warning asking me if I want to run "jucheck". If I simply delete jucheck.exe, will Java (other than the automatic check) still work, and will manual updates still work, and will it stop even trying to update every morning?
Is there some way to kill jucheck once and for all?
I don't have any Java plugin installed and never run any applets or other untrusted code.
