What I have recently done is delete the jusched.exe and jucheck.exe files in the bin sub directory of the installation directory for java. These files I believe to be involved with checking for updates.
Java applications still seem to run as normal under accounts of varying roles and permissions.
I am not too sure if the two files have other functions other than to update Java or whether it will cause problems with running certain applications.
I have also removed the registry key that schedules jusched.exe in HKLM.
The version of Java installed is 6 update 1, so it should tell me that there is an update but it hasn't so far. So, hopefully it's successful and the irritating pop ups imforming of an available update will no longer show itself.
