Is there any REAL way to disable the auto update feature?
JAVAUPDATE=0 JU=0 AUTOUPDATECHECK=0
don't do anything despite what people claim, so I assume it is not possible to do during installation (and no I do not want to use any repacks).
Similarly, [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy] doesn't seem to exist (anymore) either.
Unchecking the update feature in Control panel adds HKCU\Software\Javasoft\Java Update\Policy subkey with EnableAutoUpdateCheck value with some huge hex string in it, but the data seems to vary, so I am not sure it's an option...
