Java program constantly running in background...how to stop?


I have a Debian Jessie OS.
Every time I boot I'm used to seeing no activity on the machine after the boot is complete.
However, now I notice the cpu is active for some reason.

After running the 'top' program from a terminal - it shows there is a 'java' program open which is using about 30% cpu.
What is this program? This doesn't happen when I boot my second Debian OS.

So why is there a program running when I haven't opened up anything?

This is my exact question for you.

You ran top, and somehow you decided it is a java program.

The name of what you're seeing here would be very helpful to know, as well as the versions of Debian where you see this and where you don't see this, or are they both Debian Jessie? Is this being seen on different systems, or the same one?
