Detective Greg and the case of the disappearing Java

I created a new VMware view pool for a group of remote workers. The master was able to use the Kronos Workforce Central website just fine, but all the created VMs wanted to download java. I checked Add/Remove programs and Java wasn’t on any of the created VMs. I opened the vSphere console window to watch the VMs get created and was shocked to read:
