Well, that is on Twitter and is called Favorite.

Next to the updater asking for permission to install something and then not starting automatically this is the most annoying thing about the java runtime.

This 2 things make it impossible that my parents keep it up-to-date.

well, if at least the ask toolbar wouldn't be so crappy....or it would install something usefull...oh wait. then people would download the program itself...

I might be a little late, but did you know that you can actually stop the updater/installer from "suggesting" the Ask toolbar (or any other crap) ever* again. The solution is just two simple registry entries away: http://superuser.com/questions/549028/how-can-i-prevent-ask-com-toolbar-from-being-installed-every-time-java-is-update

However, this does not make your hate any less justified. ;-)

*Until Oracle changes minds.
