Daily Download: MS Java Virtual Machine Removal Tool

By on
[URL=http://www.softpedia.com/public/cat/13/7/13-7-127.shtml]This utility[/URL] will allow you to uninstall the unsupported MS Java Virtual Machine (JVM). This utility was previously [URL=http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;826878]hosted[/URL] by Microsoft but got removed because customers did not understand when to use the utility.

The reason you would want to uninstall JVM is because it is now unsupported by Microsoft due to a legal dispute between SUN and Microsoft and the outcome of that was that Microsoft may not even supply security updates for their JVM.

Instead it is recommended that you install the latest version of [URL=http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp]Java Runtime Environment (JRE)[/URL] from SUN and update it whenever SUN releases updated versions.
