How can I silently update/install Java to clients across an entire domain without installing add-ons such as the Yahoo toolbar?

Hi folks.  Thanks in advance.  I need to deploy Java to about 100 clients across our domain.  I need to make absolutely certain the "add-ons" attached to the Java installer package DO NOT install with the software (Bing\Yahoo\Ask.com toolbar, McAfee, etc.)

- Users who HAVE Java should have their clients updated to the latest version.  

- Users who DON'T HAVE Java should have it installed.

- Users who HAVE Java that is already updated should not be interrupted at all.

All installations should be unattended and (mostly) uninterruptable   The installation could occur pre-logon or post-logon.

Thanks again.

Mostly because I don't know what it is, I suspect.

WebStart is what you want.

Here is the primer on it - http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/tech/index-jsp-136112.html

Give that a look, and I think you'll find that it does what you want, and maybe a few things that you were looking to in the future.

>> Mostly because I don't know what it is, I suspect.

It enables users to start the application with a single click, no installation and each time they start the application the version is checked and if a new version is available it is automaticaly downloaded.

To use it, you need to have a web server where your application is hosted and available for download. Read the tutorial:
