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.
Is it possible to block Ask toolbar and McAfee from installing during Java and Acrobat updates? [duplicate]
Use the enterprise version and install it silently, like this– MDMoore313Mar 13, 2013 at 14:14
1There is a similar older question here superuser.com/questions/220897/…. Doesn't look like much has changed since then.– Brad PattonMar 13, 2013 at 14:21
**hate oracle and their bloatware.– SnakeDocMar 13, 2013 at 15:03
2Much more recent question: How can I prevent Ask.com Toolbar from being installed every time Java is updated?– KaranMar 13, 2013 at 23:32

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.
