There is no GPO to just say "Dont update my programms"!

You need to be explicit. say EXACTLY what you do not want updated.

And yes, java does allow you to turn off updates.

Control panel, Jave, Update tab, untick check for updates automatically.

That is a link that shows how to deploy java without updates.

You could also remove the administrative rights of the users.

there is an exe that is placed in your startup folder that runs the Java auto update.
Remove that exe you should be fine.
There also is a registry setting also.
