I recently recovered my system from a bad adware/spyware infection.
Java apps have stopped working.
Tried installing latest Java from www.java.com: JRE 6 U 2
Install runs for a while and the a dialog box pops up with:

bin/java-rmi.exe Old file not found. However, a file of the same name was found. No update done since file contents do not match''

No choice but OK, and then install is backed out.

Went though Add/Remove Programs and removed all old java installs and then manually deleted all java folders from the system.
Tried install of JRE 6 U2 again with same result

Any advise?

Hey Tony,
Try following these steps to install Java

1. Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
2. Scroll down to where it says 'Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u2'.
3. Click the "Download" button to the right.
4. Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
5. The page will refresh.
6. Click on the link to download 'Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language' and save to your desktop.
7. Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
8. Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
9. Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
10. Click the Change/Remove button.
11. Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
12. Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
13. Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u2-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.

If that doesn't work, I would reinstall the older version of Java that was on the system. and follow the above steps over again.
