Ive had an icon for Java in my control panel for as long as I remember, and its supposed to be the one for the java control panel. The only issue is, the icon is a folder instead of a the java logo, and whenever I open it, I get this error (in screenshot). I decided to uninstall Java and I used JavaRa to clear all the java leftovers, however it is still there after a restart. How can I remove it? I want to remove it before i reinstall Java so that I get the proper icon in control panel. thanks!

What options do you have if any when you right click on the folder?

 

Another thought.....do you even need Java? Most don't.

 

EDIT: How to remove an invalid icon from Control Panel?

The ShellObjectEditor option in your link worked. Thanks a lot! It was an easy and quick fix.
