For all you people wondering what this process Jqs.exe is and what it is doing in our system, here are the required details.
What is Jqs.exe?
When you open the Task Manager you may note that a process named Jqs.exe is running in the background. It consumes a small part of the memory but surely a useful one. It consumes around 1.5 Megabytes of computer memory and 2 Megabytes of virtual memory.
Jqs is short for Java Quick Starter and belongs to Java. The process is required to improve the startup time of Java applets and applications by pre-fetching Java Runtime Environment files frequently into memory.
Steps to disable it
Surely the process is useless for someone who does not deal that frequently with Java applets and thus should disable it.
• To disable just visit the Control Panel and open the Java entry.
• Now go to Advanced tab and look for the Miscellaneous entry below.
• Make sure to uncheck the activated Java Quick Starter entry.
That’s it the process has been disabled and removed.
