last version of java 7 i tried failed to work as anyone but admin and even as admin came up with annoying "do you want to do this" boxes so ive rolled back to j7u11 iirc as that works without nagging

is no longer sufficient. Users will eventually get prompted to update.
Hate to say it but I haven't seen/had reported any of the insecure version - will keep an eye out though.
Those java pop ups are a pain, any way to remove them ?
Our finance system runs on Java. So they will complain about the pop ups.
The first dialog in the screenshots above ("Your Java version is insecure") should only be shown when you have a Java version that isn't the current one. The only way to get rid of that is to be running the latest version.
The others can be toned down by altering the deployment.security.level, which can be done via a variety of methods (personally I use a deployment.properties file). I set ours to MEDIUM which doesn't eliminate them in all circumstances, but in my opinion is a decent trade-off between security and usability, and was the default setting before 7u11. You need to be pretty sure that you have a secure desktop environment* to consider doing this. I certainly wouldn't do it if anyone was routinely running with admin rights, for example.
I would also not recommend setting it any lower than this on any machine that has access to the Internet.
(* Yes, I'm aware that "secure desktop environment" and having the Java plugin installed is something of a contradiction)

Looks like I need to update the guides a bit more to include these extra bits
