How to get rid of Java update popups

Last Modified: 2015-03-06
I am being bugged with Java update request popups. Often I will get four requests on whatever site I happen to be on.  I do not care if I don't have the  latest and greatest version. It did say I could click on a link that would enable me to decide when the popups appeared. I have it set at next to the lowest at this time. Evidently that is not enough to prevent them. How can I tell Java ONLY to either not notify me at all OR send me ONE notification that an upgrade is available? I see no reason to be notified 4 times in a row, especially after I have  said YES to each one of them. It could happen again 10 minutes later. Experts?
