Solved A base JRE install?

Specs: Windows 7, 3.4ghz/4gb
Does Sun/Oracle offer a base JRE install, you know, one that doesn't install a crap load of browser extensions/plugins or anything else for that matter but just the JRE so any things that absolutely must have it, like Minecraft, to run, will work?

I'm guessing not. I downloaded this offline installer from their website but if memory serves me correctly last time I ran the Java installer it gave me no choice of what to install, it just merrily stuffed itself into every orifice on Windows it could find.

Control Panel >> Java

Offers the user some configuration options, including the disabling of automatic updates if you prefer to update when it's convenient for you.

Also, under the Advanced tab > Java console, you can choose "Do not start console". You don't need the console unless you are familiar with debugging Java-related errors & you understand the geek-speak.

You can always re-enable the console if you get Java errors and you want more info about it.

Actually I eventually discovered jPortable, which pretty much does everything I want.
