Problem uninstalling old Java

Posted by deew (My Page) on

I had Java 7 update 7. I updated to j7u9. Now I can't get rid of the older version. It wouldn't uninstall from the Control Panel. It wouldn't uninstall using JavaRa or Revo Uninstaller. How can I get rid of it? I have Win7.

I would probably uninstall the new version followed by a reboot... then download and install the old version.

Hopefully then you can uninstall the old cleanly before installing newest version.

Mikie, I appreciate your quick response. The old version is now gone.
