"You can skip it in the install process with ORCA MSI Editor.

When installing java, on the last page where it says Finish, navigate to your Application Data\Sun\Java folder and find the JRE folder inside before clicking Finish. You will see an MSI and .CAB file. You will need both, so copy them to another folder. Now, open the MSI with ORCA, and edit the InstallExecuteSequence table. Add this one-liner:

UninstallJQS NOT Installed 3184

that should uninstall the service right after it's installed. When deploying Java, make sure the MSI and Cabinet file are in the same directory. I know the process isn't exactly what you'd call ""convenient"", but when deploying on tens or hundreds or even thousands of computers, this is a life saver. You may want to bookmark App Deploy, this site is a must know for all administrators, it's a great resource."
