Cant unistall and reinstall
I have a problem! After deleting old versions with JavaRa, I couldn't update, even with JavaRa.
I got a message about a RegUtils.dll that didn't work or couldn't be opened.
So I tried to reinstall from jre-6u24-windows-i586.exe. Got a message that this software is already installed, tried to reinstall, didn't work ...
Read in Internet that I should try to remove Java folders from "Program Folders" and "Program Folders\Common Files" and also HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Uninstall\Java from the Registry, and then install, I did delete the folders but no such Registry entry was found.
Actually, I had backed up folders to another partition, for safety, so I put them back.
Same problem after that.
Tried Revo Uninstaller as suggested in the Internet. Removed a lot.
But I still cannot install!!!
The d... message that the software is already installed still comes back and then I cannot install, even though it asks if I want to reinstall and I confirm, it just doesn't go on and stops itself after trying again ...
WHAT CAN I DO NOW!!! To 1) get rid of Java SE remnants and 2) reinstall it?
Please help! You make me happy when you do ...
I use Windows XP SP3 and have IE8, Firefox and Opera.
