How Prevent the creation of JAVA Symbolic links (SYMLINKs)?

I hope you are all doing great.  Question: How do I prevent the creation of JAVA

Symbolic Links (SYMLINK) during the installation of JAVA in Windows 10?  Vulnerability scans of

desktops show these links as issues that need to be remediated.

I know that we can remove the Symbolic links manually, but that is

time-consuming when you have too many users.

OS: Windows 10

Application: JAVA 8.0.221 or greater

Thanks for all your help in advance.
