    Just got a popup saying java has an update, version 8 update 91. Is there an update or is it fake? And this is the main site right?:

    java.com: Java + You

    Er, is it supposed to have adware with it? I really don't remember any in the last update.

    Edit: Found this:

    Oracle has partnered with companies that offer various products. The installer may present you with option to install these programs when you install Java. After ensuring that the desired programs are selected, click the Next button to continue the installation.

    Still don't remember it asking before...

    How do I manually download and install Java for my Windows computer?

    Install Unchecky and you won't have to worry about that stuff anymore.
    Java has been trying to change browser settings and install junk for a while now.
    Oh, and check your installed programs list for older versions of Java, which may need to be uninstalled manually.

    @possom2009 see 1st post of this thread, it will tell you how to suppress sponsor offers. Then you can just silently update JAVA through the built in updater, with no offers from now on.
