I am trying to start working from home with a company and I have to have a current version of java installed onto my computer.

I am running windows 98. After having several "unable to communicate to applet after 5 attempts" messages I was advised that I should remove all versions of JRE Sun Java from my computer.

I did just that and tried once again to reinstall and run it. Again, I got the errors, so I deleted it again.

Now when I go there it states that I have no Jave Virtual Machine installed onto my computer.

I go back to java.com to dl it again and it states that I already have a current version on my computer and that I need to uninstall it before installing anything else.

My problem?

I have gone under add/remove programs and it is not there.

My friend advised me to go under search - files and folders- Sun Java - JRE- and java and manually delete all of the files which I did.

Now I cannot find any of the files on my computer and yet it states I still have versions dl onto my computer, yet when I go to launch my job chat so that I can take calls it says that I have NO java installed.

Can someone please please please email me and help me out. I am going to lose my job if I am not up and running by Weds.

I need this job. It will be 1 of three other jobs that I have to work to make ends meet. I cannot afford a new computer at this time, I seriously need any and all help that someone can provide.

Thank you so much for your time.

Kind Regards,

Please do not include an e-mail address in any post as it could lead to more contact than you intended

Thank you!

Welcome to Geeks to Go, Rachel TMUA,

Heres some links that may help you.


And there this from another forum,

I finally found the solution. Remove the JRE using the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility.
