Stop java 6 from updating Condition cam

15 Apr

To disable the Java Update Notifications browse to the following registry keys 32bit Users: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Java Soft\Java Update\Policy The remainder of the article explains how to use a Windows Group Policy to disable Java Update notifications.

You will need a Windows 7 computer with the latest Java installed and a Windows Server 2008 running your Group Policies. seems to also re-enable the Java Plug-in check box under Advanced tab.

The below fix works in Java 7 u51, but is unconfirmed for other versions. HKCU\Software\App Data Low\Software\Java Soft\Deployment Properties 1. REG_SZ: deployment.expiration.check.enabled "false" EDIT: This previously (and mistakenly) said DWORD instead of REG_SZ.

Summary: To stop the built in date expiration (which is typically the more difficult to stop) Put the following line in Deployment.properties deployment.expiration.check.enabled.locked 1. Even with no internet connection, expiration can be flagged by a preconfigured date. Note, java ignores this file for this specific setting the first time it is run after this entry is entered. deployment.expiration.decision.suppression.locked 2. If receive cream bar at top of IE asking to run Java, add site to trusted sites 3.

I've tried everything from deployment.properties files to registry hacks and nothing works.

Of course, if you update or install Java later manually, this key will get recreated.I also tried Sysinternals Proc Monitor, but can't find place in registry where this information is stored.EDIT: 1.7.0_67 Java on x64 have problem, that Enable Java Update in registry is set to 1 and it doesn't work (tab Update is not shown). 1.7.0_51 Java on x64 have problem, that whole registry path is missing in computer. 1.7.0._51 Java on x86 have path in registry and also Update tab on Configure Java dialog. I need to stop asking for downloading new version and AFTER THAT solving update all Java old versions on all computers.In my opinion, advice to disable the feature is highly irresponsible.I would personally recommend switching it to check more often.Tom: I can't imagine what I'd be protecting against.I have exactly one Java program I use, and it's locally installed and operates only on trusted data.I don't have any Java plugin installed and never run any applets or other untrusted code.I think having a program regularly access install new code over the internet would actually make me less secure. I right-click on the taskbar and unclick "Check for Updates Automatically", and then click "Never Check", and "Apply". If I come back to the "Java Control Panel" right after clicking "OK", the very same box is checked again, all on its own.If you don't check for updates you may miss out on security updates which would be a bad thing.
