Java.. Windows XP Sp 3

I was trying to prepare for the New Java version.
I've always gone to my control panel.. hit Add/Remove let my programs load.. then un-install Jave before getting the newer version.. then reboot my pc..
I have done it as above.. It won't verify..
I went back to my control panel.. my Java Icon is there..

Cannot open it..
I get a message .. " The System Cannot find the registery key specified " .....Now what ?

Thanks for helping me with this.

Do this ...


Updating Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.
  • Scroll down to where it says "Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u21 allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u21-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.
JavaRa will uninstall old Java

Jacee hello.. this didn't fix my Java..
I'm still getting the same message as before..
I can't open Java in the Control Panel. to look at anything.
Do I need to use the Geek link to download and run that to clear this all out ?
I don't know what to do now.
Thanks for helping.

LPt, download Revo uninstaller and uninstall Java. Then install it it again as you did before and register it. The registration is for updates if I remember correctly. Let me know if this works.

You need to download JRE and accept the agreement

Ok I've used Revo uninstaller to un-install Java.. there was one item left in my ADD/Remove /Control panel.. so I un-installed it in Add/remove..
I ran ATF cleaner..
I ran CCleaner
I looked in my Win Patrol.. there was still a Java item there.. I clicked it.. that took me to
another place where I saw items in a row..(JAVA)) I began at the bottom deleting items..
.. one folder Refused to delete..so left it intact.
i came back to my desktop.. ran that Java removal tool from Geeks.. ( everything connected with Java I had it to remove.)
I Rebooted my pc..
Then I went to Controp Panel there sat that infernal Java Icon.. I clicked it to open ..
getting this screen. I took this screen shot of it. ..so you may see what I'm seeing.
