    My Mac keeps asking me to install Java SE 6 when it's booted. I don't use any Java programs so I don't know why it keeps asking me. The dialog box states that to run 'java', you need to install Java SE 6 runtime.

    Anyone know how to let it stop asking it? (and without installing Java)

    In an ethereal plane of existence.
    It's probably used by some app that you downloaded. Do you use Amazon Cloud Drive? There are a few apps that use Java that you may have installed.

    Thank you for replying,

    I seem to have solved the problem. For those that are having similar issues, here it was a Facebook video calling file in LaunchAgents folder within the hidden Library folder. I deleted the file and it stopped asking now :)
