Reading more about this - I have instructions on how to disable Java from within the browser - the Oracle/Java official way to do this (and the recommended method) - is detailed here:
Although... and this is HUGE - I happen to have Java 7 Update 10 - but opening the CONTROL PANEL - reports Java 7 Update 1 in the "About" - I recommend UNINSTALLING Java 7 completely - and re-installing it - then disabling it in browsers (if you need it at all - otherwise - leave it unintalled).

Reason: updated with personal experience - instructions don't work in all cases.
