Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1
JavaRa 2.1 Released

JavaRa is an effective way to deploy, update and remove the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). Its most significant feature is the JRE Removal tool; which forcibly deletes files, directories and registry keys associated with the JRE. This can assist in repairing or removing Java when other methods fail.
The recently discovered Zero-day Java exploit has increased JavaRa’s popularity significantly, so we’re pushing version 2.1 earlier than expected.
Added Java temporary file cleaning tool
Added German, Spanish & Hungarian translations
Added /UPDATEDEFS and /UNINSTALLALL commandline arguments
Program now requests admin rights on start
Improved detection of Java version

Grab the update from the JavaRa download page.
Less Significant Changes
Displays an alert if no JRE installations are found
Fixed potential crash when checking Java version
Localized the online update check
Updated Russian & French translations
Improved performance of translator module

Good find, Bill. I've referred several people to JavaRa recently.

Just a heads up to anyone visiting the JavaRa home page. As of 01/18/2013, the home page still shows a screenshot for JavaRa 2.0. But if you click the JavaRa download link (do NOT click on any of the other download buttons!) you will be able to get Version 2.1.
