preinstalled machines with Windows XP and Service Pack 1a (SP1a)

with the Sun Java VM are as follows:
- Click Start, Run and enter:
- RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection java.inf,UnInstall
- Click Yes to confirm the uninstall, and restart your system
when it's complete.

- Click Start, Run and enter regedit to start
the Registry Editor.
- Browse to the following keys, highlight and delete them:
- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Java VM
For Windows NT4 and Windows 2000, replace
c:\windows with c:\winnt.
For Windows 95, 98, 98SE and ME, replace
c:\windows\system32 with c:\windows\system.
