Cannot uninstall Java 6 update 2

Specs: Windows XP
Cannot uninstall Java 6 update 2. When I try to uninstall Java 6 update 2, a window pops up saying an error occurred during installation. I am using Windows XP Home Edition. I cannot enter any game rooms while that programs remains. I have the latest Java update installed. I have tried several ways to uninstall Java 6 update 2 with no luck. The only advice I get from Microsoft, Java and is to uninstall the offending program. I need some better advice. Jack Scialabba

jaxx725, Download and install the Freeware version of the "Revo Uninstaller" then use that to uninstall tha Java 6 Update 2. Use the Download button at the bottom right under the Freeware column.

Just install the new version of Java. If I remember correctly, the newer versions of Java finally automatically uninstall the old version.

Thanks but when I used the REVO Uninstall, it said it was uninstalled and a Windows window opened up and offered 3 ways to change the program. (name, language ect.). The offending Java 6 Update program came on automatic updates so I don't know when it installed or I could restore prior to that point. I downloaded the latest Java 6 Update 26 but it did not override the Update 2. A real puzzler.
