    Hell, try google. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...+5.0+uninstall Search the net for people who have the same problem that you do. I just learned that not even a minute ago.

    I have that Java runtime version also. I never encountered anything regarding uninstalling one version prior to installing the next. Just install update 2 and you should be fine. However, I do have that "change/remove" option available through my control panel's uninstall applet. You may be missing a file or log that the installer requires to make the necessary changes. Hard to tell.

    You may be able to simply run the same .exe file that you used to originally install that version of JRSE 5.0 . It should detect that it is already installed and hopefully give you the options of "repairing", "modifying" or "removing" the software. Most of your major applications do. Some do not. You could also utilize a third-party application that forcibly removes/uninstalls software. Or simply go to http://java.sun.com and search through their FAQs pages for references to your problem. Or even email them. They do offer support for their products. Though the process of doing so might be abit on the slow side.

    Did anything come up specifically that actually says that the software un-installation failed? XP has a horrible reputation of having software entries remain visible on your installed programs page even after it is gone. Just a glitch could be all that it is. Your registry may not recognize that it is gone. In which case (assuming it is) you would have to do a manual registry edit to correct the problem.

    Here's a Regcleaner, its the one I use

    Pretty simple to use. Has its own section for "Uninstalled Items".

    try downloading and isntall/reinstalling the old version.
    eitehr it will work and write the add/remove entry back, OR you might be lucky and the installer will say repair or remove and you can choose remove.
