Java 6 Update 45 is a software program developed by Oracle. 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 49 files and is usually about 13.63 MB (14,287,360 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows XP. While about 43% of users of Java 6 Update 45 come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Italy.
