    I hope one of you, or one of your kids can help me. Every single time my computer restarts I get an alert asking if I want to allow a file called ju-check.exe to do something on my hard drive.

    I am fine with allowing Sun or Adobe or some other company I have heard of to do whatever they do. I have NOT asked husband because I am not really interested in what they do. If I ask husband then I have to listen to his 30 min explanation that winds up with "it might be ok or it might be a problem. We won't know until you allow it."

    I am just not very comfortable with that.

    So does anyone know what this ju-check.exe file is and if it is safe to allow it?

You need to look at where the file is stored on your computer, and confirm that the file size matches one of the sizes listed in the description below.

    Hope this helps,
