About once I week I get a notice about a new version of Java. When I let it try to install the update, it always turns out to be version 6.29, which is always determines is already on my machine. How do I get it to stop and not bother me again?

How do I get Java RE 7? – Rod Nov 23 '11 at 3:57
I linked it in my comment. Follow that link and download the appropriate version for your operating system. Uninstall Java 6, and install Java 7. – Ampersand Nov 23 '11 at 16:07
I'm sorry, I missed that. Thank you, Ampersand. – Rod Nov 23 '11 at 22:28
No worries. Very welcome. – Ampersand Nov 24 '11 at 17:54

Control Panel > Java*

Java Control Panel > Update tab

Select from the drop list: Notify Me: Before downloading

Deselect (uncheck): Check for Updates Automatically

Click Never Check on the pop up

Click Apply

Click OK

Alternatively you could just stop the updater from starting with your computer.
