| Java Quick Starter. Generally speaking it's not needed at all by normal users and is really only of benefit to people if you're using Java regularly, i.e: more than once per day. Basically it's aimed at those who use Java almost constantly for whatever reason. There is no harm in doing an 'End Process' on it or alternatively under Start Control Panel Java then Advanced tab and the 'Miscellaneous' section it can be disabled there by un-ticking the relevant tick box. Saying that, it was found to be running as a system process even though I didn't have the box ticked to enable it. Cameron|

| It's just sitting in the background, waiting for an java applet to run.Disabled it because it's not critical for those applets to run.See link from "Thodoris" |
| Jqs.exe is the Java Quick Starter I recomend turning it of due to prefetching Java Runtime Environment (JRE) files frequently into memory 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. kai rudi schantz|
| I had a program that wouldn't open, kept giving me this error to report. I tried to open about 5 times to see if it's just my computer acting up. So I opened my task manager to see if by any chance that program was still open so I could just force close it. I looked into my task manager and I never seen jqs.exe before. That was totally out of the blue and the only new task that was running in my processes tab. I only forced closed the jqs.exe and ran my program again, and all of a sudden could open now. So I am not sure if it's causing this mishap. but I will have to keep an eye out on it. The program I tried running was a mp3 converter, that had nothing to do with jqs.. Tek|
