Java 7 Update 25 is a software program developed by Oracle. The most common release is 7.0.250, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. 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 software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named javaws.exe. The setup package generally installs about 213 files and is usually about 785.85 KB (804,714 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 47% of users of Java 7 Update 25 come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Brazil.
