Problem with installing Java

P: 3
I'm having problems installing java. This is my problem:

When i install the java, it finishes downloading the files but then it says there's already java on my computer. A box comes up to ask if i'm going to reinstall the java. When i click yes it says "the product is not on this computer". Java isn't installed on my computer, i searched all of my computer and didn't find anything about java except the installation application.

Can anyone help me on this please?

What happens when you deinstall and throw away everything that even smells like Java before you install a new version?

kind regards,

Would be interesting to know how did the unsuccessful search for Java on your machine.
Did you try the Add/Remove programs option from the control panel?

I uninstalled it with add/remove programs thing and i even downloaded the windows cleaner program that removes anything but the java somehow is still on my computer.

NOTE: The program of the things i installed are in alphabetical order.
I'll show you what it says:

Did you try restarting Windows after the uninstall? It probably still has entries in some registry for it.
Perhaps there were many versions installed in other locations as well.

I restarted my computer numerous times.
Don't worry about it anymore, i'm going to completely reboot my computer. :/
