Problem removing Java
I removed Java so that I could start over using it, but when I try to reinstall I see a notice from Java setup: This software has already been installed on your computer. Would you like to reinstall? I choose yes and another notice appeared that read: This action is only available for installed programs. When I did a search for Java files I found some that could not be removed, it seem I need permission to remove them, that I do not know how to do. :(shake):
What can I do to install Java 6, Update 7?
Did you try to reboot after uninstalling from the Control Panel?
Sorry Joel, if I didn't include that information in my post. Yes, I restarted my computer, I always do that when I make serious changes.

By the way on what OS are you doing this.
