Have you ever been watching a movie and Windows will throw its UAC screen up busting you out of full-screen during your movie alerting you that Java has an update? It’s happened to me.
So you relent and you take it upon yourself to be diligent and actually update Java, you tell UAC it’s fine and to proceed. And then the Java installer comes up asking you to accept some terms of service before the update is downloaded and installed. But then. This.
Now what? What can you do? The little Java icon in the task tray is gone and it won’t pop up again for a few hours. There is no solution to this problem, except for downloading the new version of Java directly. Or you can wait again until the prompt comes back up. That’ll work too.
