I would like to know if anyone knows how I can delete the Java Plug-in from Java 1.4.2 in window XP. I am using IE 8.0. It is located in the control panel? I have exhausted all my brain power and means to do it. I have gone into the registry and deleted everything I could find in there concerning Java by typing Java and or 1.4.2 in the search function as the Java website says to do. I have done searches under the search functions in windows by various names such as Java, Sun, Oracle and every conceivable way I can think but I cannot find the java Plug-in. Maybe Java disguised the name of it to keep it from being deleted. I have checked in C:\windows\system32 and it is not there either. I could not uninstall Java 1.4.2 from the add/remove so I had to do it from the registry. Last fall I had to do a restore on my computer to factory default. After restoring it back to it original condition, I reinstalled all my updates from Misrosoft so I am using SP3. I read on another blog where some one else had done the same as I hd done but there was not any answers for a solution. I am afraid of trying to install another Java on my computer since the Java Plug-in, from the old Java is still in the control panel. By the way, I have my computer setup to look in all hidden files. Thanks.
