I need a way to control Java Versioning on our Terminal Server Box. Users are continually getting prompted to update and of course do so and it breaks some of our web applications.  What ways are there to control this. I am looking to keep it at Java7 Update60. Running on 2008 R2.

Thanks

Doesn't work on Terminal Servers. Also have added registry key in:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy

which is supposed to suppress non-administrators from getting update prompts.

Also have added Deployment.Properties as follows:

#deployment.properties
#Wed Jul 16 12:03:34 EDT 2014
deployment.modified.timestamp=1405526614354
deployment.version=7.21
deployment.security.level=MEDIUM
deployment.expiration.check.enabled.10.60.2=false
deployment.security.mixcode=HIDE_RUN
deployment.javaws.shortcut=NEVER
deployment.javaws.autodownload=NEVER
deployment.expiration.check.enabled=false
deployment.user.cachedir=D\:\\JavaCache
deployment.capture.mime.types=true
deployment.javapi.cache.update=true
deployment.browser.path=C\:\\Program Files (x86)\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe
#Java Deployment jre's
#Wed Jul 16 12:03:34 EDT 2014
deployment.javaws.jre.0.registered=true
deployment.javaws.jre.0.platform=1.7
deployment.javaws.jre.0.osname=Windows
deployment.javaws.jre.0.path=C\:\\Program Files (x86)\\Java\\jre7\\bin\\javaw.exe
deployment.javaws.jre.0.product=1.7.0_60
deployment.javaws.jre.0.osarch=x86
deployment.javaws.jre.0.location=http\://java.sun.com/products/autodl/j2se
deployment.javaws.jre.0.enabled=true
deployment.javaws.jre.0.args=

Nothing has worked.

did you try disabling it using msconfig?

try these steps:
- go to Start->Run and type in msconfig
- click on the start up tag
- find "Java Platform SE Auto Updater" and un-check it
- Click Apply and reboot
