    You might have to use a simple registry editor such as RegClean to remove all remnants of the old JAVA install, then reboot before you re-install Java.

    Java Version(s) !?

    Hi :

    Should ONLY have 1 "Version/Update" of Sun's Java on a computer at any
    moment in time . The Error Message implies you have 2 or more "Versions" and
    it would be Best to uninstall ALL "Versions" of this program you have .

    IF your Operating System is Win XP SP2 or later, use the Site recommended by
    "CCT" ; if you have an earlier Operating System, let us know and I will recommend
    the appropriate Site .
