java certificate revocation warning / windows 7

I have some window 7 computers which continually (every reboot and every time I update Java) tell me that
"Revocation information for the security certificate for this site is not available"

The computers are patched, I have uninstalled and re-installed Java and ticked the box about never asking questions about this software provider again.

The certificate is javadl-esd-secure.oracle.com (see file)

I am completely at a loss as to how to get rid of this message.

OK, you're part way there:
 
1. Click the Details tab.
 
2. Go to the CRL Distribution Point field, the full URL for the CRL is shown here.
 
If the certificate does contain a CRL Distribution Point and the browser is still unable to access the CRL, then your firewall may need to be configured to allow access to the CRL.

http://gtssl-crl.geotrust.com/crls/gtssl.crl

Take this and paste it into the browser address:

do you want to open or save gtssl.crl...?

Save and open...

So now I have a certificate revocation list on my screen

Now I go and find the CRL and install it, using the default settings.

Not sure I can give a definitive explanation as to why... Sometimes certificate updates just get "stuck". A firewall issue might have been easier to explain (since the AV software might have flagged this activity as "virus-like" and shut down the port).
