Re: Java Updates Different...Why?

This is why I never ever, unless there's NO choice, download stub installers. That's why they exist--to download and install (sometimes without asking) crapware.

Always download full ("offline") installers. The links to these are often posted here. Do NOT use the standard links (to stub installers)--unless of course you like crapware.

I use the Ninite installer for Java. It downloads the full installer and completely automates the installation process and makes sure that any included foistware isn't installed.
