we need to Change the Setting
deployment.security.level   to MEDIUM like displayed at the code at the bottom
within
%userprofile%\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\deployment.properties

this line can have some different Settings or completely missing
other lines should not be altered
the user should call the script while logging in or before starting the app.

#deployment.properties
#Tue Nov 26 11:29:51 CET 2013
deployment.expiration.decision.timestamp.10.40.2=1385050638
deployment.security.level=MEDIUM
Sun\\Java\\Deployment\\cache\\6.0\\splash\\splash.xml
deployment.version=7.21

I am unable do write scripts ... can someone help me please?

Try this, in powershell:

# name and path of the file
$file = %userprofile%\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\deployment.properties

# delete the line containing deployment.security.level, if it exists
(Get-Content $file) | Foreach-Object {$_ -replace "^deployment\.security\.level=.*?$", ""} |
Set-Content $file

# add the required line
echo "deployment.security.level=MEDIUM" >> $file


HTH,

great, nearly perfect :-)
$file = %userprofile%\AppData\Loc...    has to be
$file = "$env:userprofile\AppData\Local...

but results in leading spaces and a space between every character...:
...
deployment.javaws.jre.0.args=
   d e p l o y m e n t . s e c u r i t y . l e v e l = M E D I U M

It should of been
echo "`ndeployment.security.level=MEDIUM" >> $file

to force a new line.

Yes, you're right, it's $env:userprofile . I wrote the script for a text file and then copied your path :)
