This is my first post so please bear with me. I'm also still a bit of a novice with computers but I will try to explain my problem correctly. Here goes:
I'm in the middle of using Revo to uninstall several old versions of Java. I started with the earliest version listed in Add/Remove programs, which is, Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v 1.4.2_03.
Revo did the usual uninstall fine and then went through the PC finding all the leftover files. Under HKEY_CURRENT_USER, the Java Runtime Environment file (folder-?), lists various versions from 1.5.0_04 to the current one, 1.6.0_07.
There isn't a version corresponding with the one I started with, 1.4.2_03.
Part of my question is: Is it ok for me to select the old versions for removal by Revo, even though I started trying to remove v. 1.4.2_03 ? Or should I do them individually, working my way through those listed in Add/Remove programs?
The same applies to Java Runtime Environment under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, but something else has confused me here:
When I click on and expand any of the versions listed here, it shows related files, i.e., select v. 1.6.0_01 and it shows other files relating to that version.
However, both versions 1.4 and 1.6 list files related to the current version 1.6.0_07 (which also has its own entry), and all the listed files are identical to each other. Which of the three versions do I select for removal, or should I leave them all?
Maybe it would just be simpler to remove all trace of Java and then re-install the latest version.
I hope I've managed to explain myself ok.
If anyone has any suggestions, they would be very much appreciated, as this is driving me nuts?
Many thanks in advance,
