Java 6 Update 24 is a software program developed by Sun Microsystems. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. The primary executable is named javaws.exe. The setup package generally installs about 65 files and is usually about 15.56 MB (16,311,743 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows Vista (SP2). While about 54% of users of Java 6 Update 24 come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Germany.
