    Yes. All that is needed is a small modification to the Registry. If you are running PDQ Deploy in Pro Mode import the attached PDQ Package and then deploy to your target computers to disable Auto Update.

    The value name is EnableJavaUpdate and the necessary value is 0

    The keys are listed below.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy

    If 32-bit Java is installed on a 64-bit OS then the key is: 

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy
