Java 8 Update 31 64-bit


Java 8 Update 31 64-bit is a software program developed by Oracle. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. 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. 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 86 files and is usually about 60.24 MB (63,170,383 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 41% of users of Java 8 Update 31 64-bit come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
