Java update leads to ssvagent.exe?

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I updated the Java on the Vista pc and now today when I oprn any email going on-line I get the User Control popup want to run ssvagent.exe from Oracle America, Inc.

 

I removed the Java, but before doing a system restore, I thought I'd ask if anyone has info what this is and how to get rid of it.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks, Joe C, for the response.

I did remove java with Revo Uninstaller.

I had seen this tip;

  • In Internet Explorer click on Tools, Manage Add-ons, Enable or Disable Add-ons.
  • Click on SSVHelper Class and select Disable under settings.
  • Click OK.
  • but when I get to Manage Add-ons, there is no option in my IE9 to Enable or Disable. I do get all the addon's listed under Manage Add-ons.
  • But, there is nothing about SSVHelp Class. I did disable Oracle America Deployment Toolkit.
  • Should I just leave the java uninstalled, or is there an option?

Well I would think that if you have uninstalled Java, then you won't get any options in your add-ons for java.

 

You can try to run without java but I'm afraid you'll see that some web pages and youtube video's might not work properly

Get the latest version and then see if you can make the add-on changes

If you need Java, reinstall it.

 

Type Inetcpl.cpl in the Search box. Right-click the file and choose Run As Administrator. Click Programs and Manage Add-ons. Under Show, select All Add-ons. Right-click SSVHelper Class and click Disable.

 

The behavior is likely due to Oracle failing to digitally sign one of the SSVHelper Class files, and will probably be corrected in the next update.

Thanks, Joe C and TomGL2 for the info. I think I'll download and save it and not re-install unless I need it and hopefully Oracle will fix this as you stated. And if I do need it, I'll do as TomGL@ suggests. Thanks again.

I downloaded and installed the Java and disabled the 2 plugin SSv helpers.

 

Should I re-enable the Deployment Toolkit

You can try it but if you get the error, then disable it until they come out with a new update

Because that is where my problem started. So, I wasn't going back there.

 

You guys mentioned that Oracle would probably come out with a fix, so why should I take the chance? Remember I just saved it as a downlod. But after more posts I felt confident that if the install did not work correctly that I would remove it again and just wait for a day, or so.

I already downloded through File Hippo and it seems to be working ok

Oracle DID come out with a fix, Java 7 release 10. Where do think FileHippo acquired it? (Hint: see previous post...)
