    Jremetrics - I am clueless!

    Sorry if I'm in the wrong thread but I don't have a clue as to where to post this question. Can anyone explain to me in layman's terms what "Jremetrics" is? I just ran jv16 and this came up as a program eligible for deletion. I've never heard of this critter and it sounds suspicious. A Google and Lounge search reveal nothing substantive--actually the word isn't even in Lounge when I search. Can I delete it? I'm running Win 7 - 64bit. Thanks.

    Looks like it has something to do with JAVA, I'd go ahead and delete it.

    Can you clarify what "I just ran jv16" means? Do you mean you ran "Macecraft jv16 Powertools" or, as Berton suggests, the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.6?

    What do you mean by "this came up as a program eligible for deletion"? Did a program suggest this? If so, what program? Or was it a pop-up message?

    If you have un-installed JRE 1.6 and a "Jremetrics" metrics key remains in the registry then I would tend to export the key (just in case) before deleting it from the registry.

    Hope this helps...

    Thanks guys, maybe I'm making too much of this but the strange appearance of "Jremetrics" was sort of a shock--In all these years I never heard of this word. Here are the details. Yes, I ran Macecraft jv16 Power Tools 2014. Jremetrics did not show in the Control Panel Uninstall or change a program. Nor did it show in Tuneup Utilities 2014 "Uninstall." So I went back to jv16 Power Tools and uninstalled as much of Jremetrics as it would do & manually deleted the empty folders in WE. Now a WE global search of C:\ reveals this:
    cc_20101009_122357.reg
    cc_20101009_122357.reg
    cc_20101026_192954.reg
    cc_20101026_192954.reg
    I went back to jv16 & running a search on the word "Jremetrics" I find it reveals the following:
    HKEY_LOCAL)MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\J ava Update\Policy\ PostStatusdUrl
    Https://sjremetrics.java.com/b/ss//6
    [and]
    HKEY_LOCAL)MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JreMetrics {KEY}
    I'm afraid to try to delete these as I don't like to mess with the registry. If I'm making too much of this experience please feel free to tell me. Thanks.

    You have JAVA, or have had JAVA on your machine at one time.
    Those entries look like leftovers to me.

    If any of the above is unknown to you then leave well enough alone. It is not going to hurt anything by being there.

    If you plan on being bold and delete them, then ensure you have an image in place of recent vintage to fall back on
    in the rare event of an issue.
