Out of many, many machines on our network I have 2 that I need to keep a specific older version of Java on in order for an application to work.

We use software that pushes out 3rd party application updates (like Java) to our machines. I can make an exception for these 2 machines, however its a pain as it means I have to consciously update 2 sets of desktops now. Id rather not maintain a set of updates for 2 sets of machines when one set consists of 2 machines.

Is there a way to block Java from being updated on a specific machine? Perhaps make the folder read only..? Or something.

Any ideas?

FYI, both machines are Win 7
