Download JavaRa to your desktop and unzip it to its own folder
  • Run JavaRa.exe (Vista users! Right click on JavaRa.exe, click Run As Administrator), pick the language of your choice and click Select. Then click Remove Older Versions.
  • Accept any prompts.

Now....

Update your Java version here: http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp

Note 1: UNCHECK any pre-checked toolbar and/or software offered with the Java update. The pre-checked toolbars/software are not part of the Java update.

Note 2: The Java Quick Starter (JQS.exe) adds a service to improve the initial startup time of Java applets and applications. If you don't want to run another extra service, go to Start > Control Panel > Java > Advanced > Miscellaneous and uncheck the box for Java Quick Starter. Click OK and restart your computer.

have you tried going into the registry and editing it and placing the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\1.6.0_13 key back into the registry, then trying.
Always remember to backup your registry before making any changes to it !

The old version broke when a virus crept in. The computer got fixed, and all other programmes work fine but javas never recovered. I tried to uninstall it using the add/remove progammes feature. But it said fatal error during installation as the message. Tried to update it using methods you've said and using the java website methods. Won't update it at all. There was a missing registry key and I think I may have to delete other registry keys to fully delete the old broken version before adding a new one?

Did you actually use JavaRa to uninstall old versions?

Yeah and it said they'd been removed. But they hadn't. So I tried it again and it said once again, everythings removed. Checked and no it hadn't been removed at all. Tried it several times.

Can you post EXACT error, you're getting while updating Java?

Also....

Download Security Check from HERE, and save it to your Desktop.

* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

It looks like JavaRa worked, because there are no old Java versions listed.
In fact, there is no Java listed at all.

Check "Program Files" folder and see, if Java folder is present there.
If so, delete it manually.
Disable AVG and try "offline" Java version installation again.
