    For some reason, today my browsers are insisting on installing the
    defective JRE 1.7.0_21. I want to stick with 1.7.0_17 which works.

    I have autoupdate turned off.

    Why would it suddenly kick in today?

    There is no new version after 1.7.0_21

    I recommend asking your browser manufacturer.

    I was eliminating the possibility a release of 1.7.0_23 would make it
    suddenly start complaining about 1.7.0_17, now two behind.

    What's defective about it? Issues you posted earlier where about changed
    security policies, if I remember correctly. Unless you (and your users)
    are willing to stay at 1.7.0_17 forever I suggest you either live with
    the changes or adapt your software.

    And stop using applets for anything non-legacy.
