    Rebooting...that would be step #4.

    After that, there's no reason to go back to step 1.9.

    What do you mean by "can't get back to the above"? The Installer folder?

    Was I supposed to delete the 36 .MSI files before rebooting? They haven't been deleted yet.

    What we're trying to accomplish here is to get Java to install again. While there are other installers in that folder, we're focusing on the ones that has to do w/ JRE. So, if the 36 .msi files you've found has to do w/ Java Runtime Environment, then go ahead & delete them.

    Hope this clarifies the objective.

    Those are the ones I want to know if they should be deleted.

    After I rebooted,I did try to update & it still told me it was already installed.

    Maybe there are still something in the registry that's causing the problem. Anyway, I was looking for alternatives to CCleaner and found this - Glary Utilities . It reminds me of Norton Utilities.

    It can be found here too - http://www.techspot.com/downloads/2217-glary-utilities.html

    I haven't tried the software, but while I was checking out the web site for this program, I came across this - http://www.glarysoft.com/products/utilities/registry-repair/

    It found a bunch of error that weren't picked up by CCleaner. Check it out, see if it can fix whatever is causing your problem.

    Messing with the registry scares the ???? out of me but I'll try it. Hopefully I'll return with good news.;)

    The default setting is "create restore point before repair" but just to be safe, click Menu, then Settings. The box next to Create a Restore Point Before Repair should have a check.

    Then click Repair.

    I clicked OK, exited the program, then reboot.

    Well, after I rebooted, I went to java.com , downloaded java & as it was installing it still told me it was already installed.

    That's what I would have done. Don't know, no idea, other than something is screwy w/ your system. And it's not cooperating. :mad:
