My computer is so slow lately and I found a new process in the task manager - jusched.exe
What is this jusched.exe - is jusched a virus or spyware?


Most likely this is an ok background process. Search your hard disk for jusched.exe - it should be located in c:\Program Files\Java\j2re* (see sample below).

If you find it there, then this jusched.exe part of Sun Microsystem's Java2 suite. This background process looks for Java updates and installs them, if available. This program is not a risk for you. You can terminate it temporarily (until next reboot) to free up a few resources, but don't expect too much of an improvement from this.

You can also permanently disable this process following these steps:
go to your control panel
click on the java module
go to the updates tab and uncheck "check for updates automatically"

C:>dir jusched.exe /s
 Volume in drive C has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is 6C16-2C2C
