In the Java control panel (Java 8, Update 31) unchecking the "Check for updates automatically" box, doesn't STAY unchecked when you hit Apply, OK, and then re-open the control panel.

Doing that and then restarting the machine doesn't do the trick either. Any ideas?

Open terminal and type the following:
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.oracle.java.Java-Updater JavaAutoUpdateEnabled -bool false

Open in new window

Hit return.
You will be asked to put in your password.

So far, this is the only way I have found to solve this.
