It is indicating End-of-Life and Install Solution. Has been like this for weeks. When I attempt to Install Solution, it creates/downloads jre-6u31-windows-i586.exe file. When I attempt to "Run" that program, the message says that program is already installed on my computer. Why am I not able to clean up Sun Java JRE 1.4x?

JAVA PROBLEMS
Can be used with Windows XP,Vista & Windows 7 - 32 & 64 Bit Systems.

Go to Control Panel>add/remove.

Uninstall ALL versions of JRE or JSE or JDK or JVM or JAVA(TM) EXCEPT for JAVA(TM) 6 Update 31.

Now do a full PSI rescan & all should be in order.

Windows does not require JAVA to be installed to work therefore if U make a error & uninstall the lot it does not matter.

U can download the latest version from here if U really require JAVA.

U can test it is working correctly here:

Pleased to see U appear to be all fixed up. This is worth a read about JAVA & may help U decide whether U really need it installed at all.

On that basis, I will lock this thread for U sometime tomorrow unless U post back asking for it to be left open.
