Java/Adobe/etc installs end up with a 1606. I have xp home, sp3 most updates are applied. I had a 'real time' trying to get rid of the JAVA that was installed, but with IOBIT,DOS commands, CCleaner, JavaRa, and Revo it seems that I have gotten rid of most of it. I still have the entry if I pull up "Add/Remove' Pgms off the Control Panel but there is NOTHING to the right of it. Just an empty space, no 'Size" or 'Remove" or anything. Just white space.
I have run all of the kb's, checked every registry key I've seen mentioned, run the auto fix items and done the manual ones.
I still cannot load JAVA either online or offline. I also tried disconnecting from the web with the downloaded offline version and got nowhere.
I have rebooted at least 25 times by now and even tried a different destination folder - all no NO avail.
I have deleted an extra "Office" key ( had a 9 and 14) and looked at the default user reg key. "Nope".
I am slowly becoming "Disillusioned" and have run out of ideas - say one.
I've spent about 16 hours on this and could use some ones, anyones, help.
Thanks in advance to anyone with an idea.
