Is there an official Java removal tool?

by LakesReg / October 13, 2010 10:34 AM PDT

I mean something that comes from Sun/Oracle to remove the previous version of Java
Like now when Java 6 version 22 is out. Something to remove Java 6 version 21

For Windows?

Sure. I just finished writing an Eclipse install document. We head to the Control Panel and remove it with Add/Remove Programs there.

I use Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit with Vista SP2
I want to unintsall Java 6 Version 21 so I can do a clean install of 6 Version 22'

So is there some sort of removal tool to run from Java? Or just use the good old unintsall from Control Panel?

Just remove it from the control panel and do add and remove programs and find it on the list and press remove

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
