    Most people do run Java. I'm talking about the public of course.

    That's probably a fair statement, since going to Win 7, I've found no compelling reason to run a maintenance heavy software package, plus the inherent risks of running the software. Just some thoughts ...

    Any auto-update funtionality of Sun Java may be disabled via this MSCONFIG item and via the Java Control Panel. One would disable in both areas.

    Opinion, since Oracle | Java update only occasionally, the is no real need to have this set to automatic.
