Not that I know of.

Note that Oracle has released a Java 7 Update 11 to address security vulnerabilities and you should update to that version.

You can find the latest Java version on the Oracle website, see Java Platform > Java SE 7U11 and Java 6U38 (Download JRE)

You're welcome.

Note that there is a Java 7 Update 12 pending to resolve installing issues with missing registry keys on Windows, so keep an eye on that.
