  1. As the title reads I"m having issues updating my java. After uninstalling all versions of java that I found on my system - after running the JavaRA to remove all hidden files I'm still getting the same error message which reads
    " error 1714. The older version of Java 7 Update 9 cannot be removed."
    Contact your technical support group.

    Installation Failed
    The wizard was interrupted before Java 7 Update 9 could be completely installed. To complete installation at another time, please run setup again.

    Click"ok" to exit the wizard.

    I appreciate whatever help is available.

    I had a similiar situation some months ago, it fixed its self the next time java had an update. Be patient, it could work for you.

    Try using Revo uninstaller. This should remove the rest . Then let you install your java update.

    Hint: Very few of us NEED Java, and with all the security issues this year, I've opted to disable/uninstall it altogether.

    @ jobeard,Thanks, I was wondering if I could re enable mine, but now I won't.

    Yeah java had its days and like jobeard said, you do not need it unless you are a java coder

    have you tried using the full offline installer?
    from: http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp
    http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=69476 64-bit
    http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=69474 32-bit
    "If you use 32-bit and 64-bit browsers interchangeably, you will need to install both 32-bit and 64-bit Java in order to have the Java plug-in for both browsers"
