Windows 7: A Few questions???

A Few questions???

As you guys might notice, the main reason I make posts here in this forum is to ask for help cause I am a novice compared to the more experienced people here, but if you can really help me on this 2 questions, I would add your rep

1. I uninstalled Java but its Control Panel entry seems to be stuck in the Control Panel. I actually removed it with Revo Uninstaller which is more powerful than Windows' own uninstall utility. How do I remove that invalid Java entry from the Control Panel??? I even tried to use Windows Installer Cleanup Utility to remove Java's remaining components but the invalid entry remains in the Control Panel.

2. I noticed that as my video and song collections increase, Windows Media Player 12 gets slower to open the first time I try to open it since I turned on the PC. Anything I can do to speed this up a little???

3. In Windows Media Player 12, how do I make the buttons red instead of blue. I discovered a registry hack to change WMP12's background here in this forum so there must be a hack to change the play/pause, forward,backward, shuffle, repeat and volume buttons to red. I already saw someone here posting a screenshot of his WMP12, having red buttons.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

You can google for a program named "Add remove pro" It's a free tool that lets you remove valid programs as well as any entries that are still hanging around after the program was removed such as the ones you have.
