    Java Runtime Environment 1.7.0

    I removed Java in order to start over from scratch. When I try to reinstall I get nothing but error messages, such as:

    This software has already been installed on your computer. Would you like to reinstall it? After clicking yes, this appears: This action is only available for installed programs. I found 4 Java files after the uninstall which I cannot remove. I went into Safe Mode to remove them but was unable to. The files are 2 each of these:

    ADOJAVAS.INC
    ADCJAVAS.INC

    When I tried to install them manually, I was informed that I needed permissions to perform this action. It seems that I don't know how to use permissions because I couldn't change them from Trusted Installer. When I choose to edit, permissions were grayed out.

    Please help me install Java.

    Have you tried to reboot after the uninstall. Sometimes files are being used that will only be released with a reboot.

    Have you tried to download the java file then right click the files and choose Run As Administrator. This gives a higher level of permission. The download page shows both 32 Bit and 64 Bit links depending on what version of windows you have and which version of browsers you use. A 64 Bit OS will probably need both 32 Bit and 64 Bit versions installed.

    Sounds like Windows installer has Java listed as installed, but cannot find the un-installer. You should remove the intall reference by either using Revo Uninstaller trial or do it manually. In the manual version you will have a long list to wade through, so I suggest you use Find (Ctrl F) and seerch for "java".

    cheers, Paul

    Thanks Paul,

    First I'll try the link you provided, if that fails I'll opt for the 30 day free trial of Ccleaner as Hans suggested.

    You mentioned using Find (Ctrl F) and search for Java. I have repeatedly mentioned that I don't have any Java files on my computer, so there's nothing to find (unless I misunderstand what you are referring to).

    Gloria, the search is in REGEDIT, should you be brave enough to use it. ;-))
    REGEDIT is the method I prefer, it's simple and always works.

    cheers, Paul

    SpiritWind, I visited your link and could not find a download link anywhere. I used Google and found the .zip file to download and install JavaRa on the Major Geeks web page. I now have the tool that I was searching for, a way to remove old, redundant Java files.

    I do thank you for calling it to my attention.
