I didn't get a chance to try Revo, and CC wouldn't budge those two Java's, here's what I tried, from a different thread I'm helping in:

Important The Windows Installer Cleanup utility (MSICUU2.exe) that was previously referred to in this article was discontinued. Although the Windows Installer Cleanup utility resolved some installation problems, it sometimes damaged other components that were installed on the computer. Because of this, the tool was removed from the Microsoft Download Center. The Program Install and Uninstall troubleshooter is a replacement for that utility.

Have you tried the old "install Java again just so you can uninstall it"?
If you need an old version - FileHippo might have it.

No, since the fix-it worked I didn't get that far.

Its getting close to when I'm returning my niece's notebook to her, it'll be a couple of hours after the Daytona 500.

It is running pretty well it is actually pleasant to use now, compared to when I first looked at it.
I'm going over some finishing touches on updates, installing antimalware programs, Secuna PSI, and checking system settings.

My only concern is, how do I remove the security access code (key) from the network?
And, are there any registry keys I need to check to make sure my security key does not remain on her machine?

If I go to her wi-fi settings app >Click on the network name >Then tell it to forget network or something similar. Would that do it? Would there be any traces in the registry?

I don't mind if her machine can see my SSID, I just don't want her, or anyone else in her circle to have access to my wi-fi.

Click the network icon in the notification area. Click Open Network and Sharing Center. Click Manage Wireless Networks. Right-click the network you want the computer to forget and select Remove Network. It shouldn't leave anything behind.

Thanks Petey7.
Call me paranoid, but you say shouldn't, is there a way I can be sure?

The events that lead up to me applying my security key:
  • I started her machine it saw my SSID and asked for the key to log on.
  • I typed in the key and her machine was connected to our wi-fi.

Would this work?
  • After I tell her machine to forget.
  • I would back out of Network and Sharing Center, and re-boot her machine.
  • It automatically searches for available local wi-fi's, I would think mine would be included.
  • But, the entry for the security key would be blank again.

When I say shouldn't I mean anytime I have done this before, which has been multiple times, it has worked precisely how you think it should work. You don't even need to reboot. It should automatically disconnect. However, I have never, say, gone digging through the registry to make sure every single reference to said network was removed.

Thanks again Petey,

I followed your steps and it did work precisely as you described.

It asked me if I really wanted to do this and if I did I would have to recreate a new profile in order to reconnect. I said yes.

Went back to wi-fi access, my wi-fi was listed and asked to connect, a box popped up and I would have had to reapply my security key in order to connect.

Dropped the niece's machine off last evening and she was very happy especially when I showed her all her pictures were back in Libraries >Pictures.

Went over all the problems and what to do to stay away from them.
Showed how to navigate to the new programs I installed and how to use them.
One was the Snip-It tool, she thought that was real neat.
Went over the Steam install and how to set it up as per Petey7's instructions.

Then I had a talk with her on how much this would have cost if she took it to BestBuy, I hope it sunk in.

By the way...I have free oatmeal cookies for life on my birthday.

Will she make enough for the whole forum?
They won't go to waste...
...or maybe they will go to waist.

Glad that you got it working for her.
