java.exe on XP

P: n/a
My XP system has slowed down a lot lately and looking at the process list it
seems the java.exe process is largely responsible. Can anyone tell me how to
turn this bugger off so it won't execute at startup? It seems to be using
the CPU on and off, so the graph has a sawtooth look.

thanks

You can "turn it off" by killing the process, but then you'll lose whatever
program it's running. Tomcat uses it, for one. To permanently disable it,
find out which program *is* using it and stop it from starting
automatically.

You can look under startup services under ControlPanel -> Administrative
Tools -> Services

Whats hard to find out is what service is using the java.exe

If you have a list of services running that you can post on the newsgroup,
someone might be able to point out what service to shutdown or what service
is using the java.exe

java.exe is basically the virtual machine for excuting java code. Any java
code that runs uses this executable, and there certanily are a zillion
application out there that can potentially be using java.exe
