How to uninstall Java 7 u 9

How to uninstall Java 7u9? My PC runs Windows XP. I have installed the following browsers: IE8, Google Chrome, Mozilla-Firefox. Issue is the following: my java program is corrupted. I downloaded java from java website to re-install it but when I tried I get an error message (installation incomplete). I tried to with an off-line installation: same result; I tried then to uninstall old program following standard procedures (setting - control panel uninstall) but I get a fatal error and I was not able to uninstall. I switched off and on again the PC and tried again to uninstall. Same result. I tried to uninstall with JavaRa (saved on my desktop): same result. I do not want to delete java files one by one manually because I am worried to generate even worse issues. How can I proceed? Pls answer in simple English because I am not an IT expert. Thanks a lot
