    Re: Java 6 Update 10 released

    Java 6 Update 10 automatically installs and activates a new service on Windows 2000 and Windows XP without any notification: the Java Quick Starter service jqs.exe. The purpose of this service is to prefetch frequently used Java RTE files into memory, so that Java will start faster when it's needed. It's not activated on Windows Vista because Vista has its own prefetch mechanism.

    From a look at the Processes tab of Task Manager, jqs.exe appears to be quite active. If you don't use Java RTE frequently, the small gain in startup speed for Java may not outweigh the increased use of memory and processor capacity. You can turn off the service in the Advanced tab of the Java control panel; it's at the very bottom of the list (see screenshot).
