Question about Computers & Internet
Perhaps you've recently attempted to uninstall without success or the source folder might have been deleted manually. Please check the "java" folder in the C: drive "Program Files" folder.
Well, if you like to uninstall the older version (updates), then open
the sun java home page,
download the latest version and run, you'll be asked whether you'd like to continue with a warning message saying all the older versions will be deleted. Just click "yes" the older version will be deleted and a new version will be replaced.
If you want to uninstall both the versions; you can use this tool
Microsoft Windows installer utility
Download and install this program, to to "Start" > "All Programs" > "Run Windows Install clean up utility" and follow the on screen instructions. From the menu, you'll be able to select whatever you want to uninstall from your computer. This is used when "Add/Remove programs" doesn't help.
You can also use another application called ccleaner from piriform.com (click here to download)
Download and install it, run the program and click "Tools" and highlight the item you want to uninstall and click "uninstall" .
If the problem persists after doing all these, please let me know so that I can give you another alternative.
Thanks for using FIxYa.

its a software error, and the java program is stuck to your system, it would be very difficult for it to remove from the add/remove program. This usually occurs on windows sometimes.
Therefore to remove the program, you have to delete its files manually.
Go to "My computer", click "Drive C:, check "Program Files" folder, you will see a list of your installed programs, look for "Java" folder, open the folder(s) and manually delete the files that are therein. Note that some files might refuse to delete, you can cut such files to your desktop and delete it from there.
After everything, you can do a windows update and the latest version of Java will automatically be installed on your computer. Or go to java.com and download another from there.
I hope this helps.
