Windows 7: Accidentaly removed the "Java" folder, can't re-install.

Accidentaly removed the "Java" folder, can't re-install.

So I kind of accidentally removed the "Java" folder with shift+del and now I can't install Java again nor can I uninstall the removed Java.

So now you're probably asking yourself "WHAT THE FUDGE!? How do you even accidentally remove it!?" Well I was going to remove another folder starting with J, but I miss-clicked and didn't notice. <_<

So needless to say I can't use Java now. Any ideas on how to fix this would be awesome!

Oh damn it, just noticed I tried to install the wrong version of Java. Installed the latest now and it works!
