Is there a setting in GPO to make changes in the Java Control panel? If not GPO is there some other tool I can use?

I attached a screenshot.

I havent tested this java option specifically but a lot of the java settings are controlled by registry keys. If you can find the name and value of this registry key you could probably deploy a group policy preference registry key in order to enable/disable this value.

What I would reccomend is to set a fresh install virtual machine with little to no extra software. Download and run regshot on the machine and snaphot it before and after changing the setting above. Regshot output should show you what the registry key value was changed to and you should be able to replicate it with a GPO.

You could also use the deployment.properties file to add settings into the JRE engine. These are used from version 1.7 and up.

There are also custom JRE adm(x) files to be found. Problem is thet you actually need to know what version you are using as Oracle has the habit of changing settings with every version :)

Simply use regfromapp to find out what this checkbox does to the registry and later deploy the reg settings via GPO.
