I need assistance re loading JAVA. Something occurred this morning that has corrupted my JAVA files. Yes, I did download a Bit Torrent program and then later deleted it. I am not sure wheter that may have caused this problem. However, web sites relying on JAVA just will not work now. Since I run XP Professional, I attempted to revert my computer back one day and still JAVA will not work. I attempted to go to my Control Panel to remove JAVA hoping to reload JAVA. I could not find the JAVA program in my Program Files when going through the Control Panel and then to the Add/Delete section. I did find the JAVA program when using Windows Explorer; however I had no way of completely deleting the corrupted program. Pressing the Delete key could not delete all files. What a mess !!! When attempted just to reload Java over the former version, I received an error message stating that JAVA was already loaded and the installation immediately stop. I am seeking to completely unload all JAVA files and the attempt a brand new installation of JRE-1_5_06. I run XP Professional and use primarily Firefox 1.5 as my browser. Everything worked perfectly until this morning. Whatever assistance can be provided would greatly be appreciated.
