Hi Experts,

I have a cliënt computer running Windows 7 x64 in a Windows Server 2008 R2 domain environment.

Recently the JAVA version on the client computer updates to JAVA 7 update 45. This generates very annoying security messages on several websites the user uses.

I want to change the Java security level, but it's greyed out. When i change it under my admin account, the setting is not changed under the users account.

Is there a way to achieve this? Maybe through group policy?

Java's security messages are annoying, but they now are part of using Java in a browser.  This occurred because of the security problems Java had in 2012.  Apparently Java could not fix the problem entirely so now leaves it up to the user to take responsibility when using Java.

So changing Java's security level is not going to make the messages go away.  You can however decide to disable Java.  See "Disabling Java in the Browser" here

The messages are generated when unsigned applets are executed or when applets come that don't even have a section "security" in their manifests. So the local setting "low" will not fix it but better applets will.

Well, but is the selected answer correct? Does java indeed " leave it up to the user to take responsibility when using Java"? Or is it just that the applets you use are not yet adapted to the new security standards being not correctly signed and not having the section "security" in their manifests?
