Java 7


Java 7 is a software program developed by Sun Microsystems. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named javaws.exe. The setup package generally installs about 44 files. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 7. While about 42% of users of Java 7 come from India, it is also popular in the United States and BD.
