    Ok what happened with the version numbering?

    I have JRE7u1 32bit & 64 bit versions installed.

    I now see JRE6u30 is the latest.

    I wonder how many click-happy users will simply blow past the warnings when they're using an outdated jre version? :rolleyes:

    "Prompt" is default but maybe they should have made "Never - Do not use insecure JRE versions" as default.

    I would reccomend everyone using java to use java 7 as well since java 6 support runs out in april 2012 I think it is.

    I feel that most users will just click ok and wont care they are running outdated java long as they can play a fun game their friend told them about lol.

    Does anyone know of a way to permanently block the adding of this kind of entry, in a silent way? I'd like to follow this kind of approach with relatives, considering Java auto-update doesn't work, at all. Having to remember to remove it manually is just cumbersome.

    Yup - uncheck the MSCONFIG item and you're good to go ;)

    Auto-update does work without the MSCONFIG item via Control Panel.

    I never used msconfig that much, for this kind of thing. lol No idea it would allow to permanently remove it. Just to be on the safe side, future Java updates will not re-add/re-enable that entry?
