Hello experts, I would love to have a batch file that I could run on the computers in my network that would turn off annoying messages to end-users asking them to update their version of java.

We have both 32 bit and 64 bit Windows 7 Ent. PC's.

You can use policypack that contains most the 3rd applications group policy settings

Else use group policy preference for disabling java update

ram_kerala is right, I would also use GPPs.
We can also modify the installation package of java using an msi editor, so it won't happen in the first place.

If you install the latest Java JRE you will not get the update notices.
