Purpose of jp2launcher.exe:
jp2launcher.exe file purpose and description:
jp2launcher.exe is a program file which may have already existed on your computer when you bought it. The exact disk location is also shown below for you, as many spyware programs use similiar names and just locate them elsewhere on your hard drive, but this will allow you to verify your software file and what folder it is located in. This program becomes active when you attempt to remote or use java to connect to remote locations. It's part of java from Sun Microsystems and runs in your web browser. It will not be in your system startup and will not always be active in your system tasklist. This program is considered safe and is not spyware, virus, or adware related software. (See the details below for the actual location of this file.)

This is an executable program
Where is the file or folder located on my computer?
This file will be found at: C:\PROGRAM FILES\Java\Jre6\bin\jp2launcher.exe (May also be (X86) program files folder).
Be aware that many tasks will be similiar names to existing tasks or processes.
You can always view the running tasks on your computer by pressing ctrl-alt-del to view the windows
"task manager", and then view the "processes" tab. This will show you all tasks running or currently active
on your PC. Although this shows you all running tasks, it does not show dll file thats are loaded, as they
get loaded as part of other processes. Many spyware writers attempt to hide their files
on your computer, for example, jp2launcher.exe may be intentionally misspelled to look like a similiar task, or spyware may be named very
similiar to a Windows system task. The reason they do this is so you cannot easily recognize the name in your tasklist
as I have mentioned above. Make sure always check the location of the file if you are concerned.
You can always find the location of jp2launcher.exe on your computer by using your Windows search options, but
I will also try to list the file location of every file described on this website, so you can verify the correct location. You can view the entire tasklist directory with the link below.
