    Pardon my language, but this is getting to be a pain in the ***. I have a ton of patience,but....

    I went to java.com, downloaded it & as it was installing, the above came up. ONE on top of the other. I had to move the top one to show you both of them.:confused::mad:

    It looks like you didn't complete all the Next> prompts that I ask about previously.

    On the Java Setup window above, click on Yes.

    Any future checks for Java updates should be done here.

    I clicked on yes & the other one pops up.
    I have done everything I've been told to do.
    I will try the other link.

    Using that other link in the previous post, I downloaded it & upon TRYING to install it,it tells me " This software has already been installed on your computer. Would you like to reinstall it?
    And we'
    re back to those two again.:confused:

    I hate going into the registry,but will cross my fingers. I have created the restore point.

    I'm guessing you already know I've used the CCleaner registry cleaner in an earlier post??

    I did exactly as it said to do

    "Click on Edit->Find tab in Registry Editor window and then enter Java version that you want to find Keys for
    For example: serching for Java(TM) 6 Update 24 finds this: " Only I typed in 6 update 31"

    Nothing was found so I couldn't do this

    " Delete the registry entry found for Java, by right clicking on the registry key name, and selecting Delete.
    Click Yes on the Confirm Key Delete message box.
    After you finish above steps, go back to the Windows Control Panel
    For Windows XP: Add or Remove Programs
    For Windows 7: Uninstall programs
    The entry for Java should no longer appear. "

    Did I do something incorrect?

    I'd go less general and search for "Java(TM)"

    Will do. I'm about to give up on it but will try your advise. I'll type in "java". w/o the quotes.

    Just that? You tried pressing F3 to search for the next one?

    Since you're searching using a broader term, there might be other registry entries w/ the word "java". My suggestion was using something less general but not quite as broad as yours. I included "(TM)"

    No change. Did this Java(TM) & even F3, still no change from post #110.

    Looks like it's time to roll back a restore point or two. In post #73,

    These are files you found and deleted? After Javara did it's removal?

    Yes,Ok, I'm using Windows XP Pro & I found them by clicking the start button>Search>files & folders.
    NOT javara

    Try going back to the point before the files were deleted, then reinstall JAVA. If I remember right, you try to install JAVA after deleting the files?

    :( I just checked my system restore & it appears there are NO restore points for last month despite the fact I made them.

    Are the files you deleted still in the Recycle Bin? Maybe try restoring them if they are.

    For what its worth, when I re installed Google Chrome, it gave me the choice to install java to a different folder. I didn't do such because I didn't know if I should or not.
