On a weekly basis Java was asking me for permission to update itself, and as an INB user, that's irritating, because I NEVER want Java to update itself. I have found out how to stop these automatic updates on Windows.
Go to Start > All Programs > Java > Configure Java
On the resulting screen, click the Update tab.
Uncheck the "Check for Updates Automatically" box.
You'll be prompted with a warning asking if you don't really want to check at least monthly. Click the "Do Not Check" button.
Click OK on the original screen, and you're done.
