Some of my users are required to have Java installed on their machines for specific applications. I have been instructing them to become more aware of automatic updates from Oracle. My problem is that, although warned, some of them are missing the Ask Toolbar checkbox when updating Java. Is it possible to block that install whether they check the box or not? The same for McAfee and Chrome during the Acrobat update.

There is a similar older question here superuser.com/questions/220897/…. Doesn't look like much has changed since then. –  Brad Patton Mar 13 '13 at 14:21

Use the enterprise version and install it silently, like this. Acrobat can be installed the same way, they usually have 'enterprise' versions which don't come with the bloatware.
