JRE 1.7_71 on XP - Get rid of security message

Hi Experts.

I have a situation where I am forced to use Windows XP, with Internet Explorer 8, and also need to run JRE 1.7_71.
This combination generates a Security Warning every time an applet is accessed, and there are no "Do not show this again" checkbox.

I have tried most things, like setting Java Security to medium, adding the site to trusted sites, using the Java exception list etc.

"This Web site is requesting access and control of the Java application shown above. Allow access only if you trust the web site and know that the application is intended to run on this site. Allow access to the following application from this web site?"

Java Security Warning
Any ideas on how to get rid of this?

Thanks,
Bjorn

Oracle has a way around this in its most recent releases of the JRE through the use of something called a rule set.
I enclose the links that describe these below:
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/jweb/security/deployment_rules.html
http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/release_changes.xml

Below is a sample ruleset that worked with our application:

<ruleset version="1.0+">
  <rule> <!-- allow anything signed with company's public cert -->
    <id location="http://10.190.65.254/myapp">
    </id>
    <action permission="run"/>
  </rule>

 <rule>
   <id />
    <action permission="default"/>
  </rule>
</ruleset>

We packaged the rule set in a signed jar and deposited it in a directory:

C:\Windows\Sun\Java\Deployment

After that, no more prompting.

(All the above is found on and copied from the internet)

Thanks, I'll try this and post back, probably tomorrow.
Have to figure out the packaging and signing as I've never tried that before.
