    I am trying to change my java settings. When I click on the java icon in the control panel, the java window comes up, but I can't see anything. There is just a garbled color window. I read something about having to change the display settings to 256 colors, but I don't have that choice just 16 bit and 32 bit. Has anyone else seen this?

    Can't say I've ran into this before. What OS are you using?

    Win XP. I have a LCD monitor, I am not sure if that is part of the problem.

    God java is a piece of shit...

    But sorry I have no idea, just thought I would take this opportunity to rip on java. I still remember in one of my java courses in college the first day the professor showed us this applet he wrote that had a ball bouncing around a rectangular area, but it was slow as shit and jerky and was complete garbage... he was so proud of it (at that point I had been writing games using Direct3D for years) :rofl:

    Ummm Kay,

    I am just trying to get the automatic updates turned off so I don't get the "jusched.exe is trying to end" crap when I shut down.

    There should be a java icon in the control panel to control it as well.

    I think you can also disable it from starting by editing the Run key in the registry. Or use msconfig to edit it.

    When I click on the java icon in the control panel it brings up a window that I can't read. There is just a mess of colors.

    Thank you thank you!! That worked!! I looked around on the java website but couldn't find anything.

    Thanks again!!!!!

    I know that it was stupid but I hate waiting for the jusched.exe end program screen that pops up when I am shutting down. Now I got that disabled.

    Wow seriously? You have to disable anti-aliasing in the video card driver to view the java control panel correctly... which should have NOTHING to do with anti-aliasing? :bowrofl:

    I don't get it, but it worked. When I click on the icon in the control panel the java window that pops up is just a mess of colors. What I don't understand is the jusched.exe windows pops up when I am shutting down and I have to end the task or it will just hang. This only happens on my one pc, and not the others. All I could find about that jusched.exe was to disable the auto check for updates, that was what I was trying to do in the java control window.

    well, jusched.exe is the java update scheduler. If you don't give a shit about java automatically updating itself (and who does) just disable the service.

    Start => Run => "msconfig" => Startup tab => Uncheck "jusched.exe" => OK.
