Every time you launch a Java applet, a Java Web Start application or the Java Control Panel, the system first launches your program and then, in the background (so that performance of your Java application is not impacted), it determines if it has checked in the last 7 days for a Java update.
Here's a few things you can do if you're having problems updating Turbo Tax on a wireless connection: If downloading updates appears to freeze or stop at 0% or 100%, do not end the downloading process, even if the Task Manager displays "Not Responding." Wait up to 15 minutes before doing anything (several hours on a dial-up connection).
If the Updater closes prematurely while you're checking for updates (usually with an error message or number), run your computer's disk cleanup tool to delete unnecessary files and empty the Recycle bin.
Then select Check for Updates in your Turbo Tax program to resume the update process where it left off. You can always download and install a manual update as a workaround.
