Do you see this exe consuming resources when you open up your Task Manager ?

Experienced computer users might guess that the process is related to Java and that is the case indeed. Jqs.exe is the Java Quick Starter which was designed to improve the startup time of Java applets and applications by prefetching Java Runtime Environment (JRE) files frequently into memory. Thatís mainly interesting for users who work with Java on a day to day basis.

But for the reset, who might hardly encounter with Java applet in a month, you can disable the Java Quick Starter to save your valuable system resources.

Now, if you want to disable the Java Quick Starter process you can do that in the Windows Control Panel. You find a Java entry there which will open the Java Control Panel.

A click on Advanced and the selection of Miscellaneous will display the activated Java Quick Starter entry. Uncheck the box to disable the process. This will be visible in the Windows Task Manager immediately.
