Annoying crapware on Java Updates (a.k.a. toolbar)

Tired of this annoying toolbar being installed every time Java gets updated?

Here’s the solution:

Open a notepad, copy-and-paste this code and save it on a file called “disable_java_sponsors.reg”.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



Then double-click on the new file, answer “yes” to the question about merging the registry and say bye to these annoying crapware. Next time you update Java, the bar (and eventually all other sponsored tools) should be disabled and not installed.

Click here to download disable_java_sponsors.reg.
