My system pops up an auto java update even when the system is connected to the internet? Should there be any concerns surrounding this? Please let me know.

    No my question was- Is it even possible that these Java updates pop up even when I am not connected to the Internet. Where do these updates reside? They are popping up on my system even when I am not connected to the network.

    If you connect to the internet at all, Java will check for an update. Once it knows that there is an update available, it will let you know (pop-up window), even when off line. You would obviously need to reconnect to the internet to do the update.

    ^ That.
    If you want it to stop, you can configure Java to not check for updates automatically.

    ^ I believe there's also a task that runs on startup so you could also check this in Task Scheduler.
