I've tried everything to do a company wide disable of the java updates with no luck. I tired the registry edits but they don't seem to work in win 7. As we make our users users they don'thave right to update so when the updater pops up they just have to click cancel and that is too much to ask :-)

I notice on my machine when I disabled it it created a reg key under hkcu\software\javasoft\java update\policy and there is a REG_BINARY key called EnableAutoUpdateCheck. I copied it over to another machine and installed at as the user but when I go into the control panel as the user it is still checked and grayed out. When I run as the admin (still logged in as the user) it's unchecked.

Anyone have any idea other than to make the user and admin and manually uncheck it for each user?

as you have asked for doing it remotely...
first you need to find out the registry value, export it...
use telnet...put the command REGEDIT /S "javanoupdate.reg"

as well if you can create the batch file for the same and put it in startup folder.

if you are running domain based n/w, you may put this as startup script for the user...

I guess I need to be more clear. I have tried the reg keys you linked to and they don't work for windows 7.

I have exported the new reg key and imported it and it doesn't work correctly. It only disables the update for the administrator not the logged in user.

Going to each PC and setting it isn't the solution we are looking for. I have way to many PC's to walk around and touch.

I did see there is switch on install that might work to disable it. I will try it and update. If it works I'll just deploy it again with SCCM.

Ended up using GPO to remove the juschedule reg key. Works great.
