Should I start considering a system restore?

Alright, go in C:\Program Files and delete the Java folder, the whole thing.

Re-run SecurityCheck and see if it still detects Java.

Alright. Go in your Folder Options panel, under the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files, folders and drives" is checked. Once done go in the C:\ProgramData and let me know if you see a Java folder.

I'm sorry if you think I've gotten ahead of myself. I created a restore point and did a system restore before I messed with Java. I can go back and look for those hidden files at my saved restore point. Or we can work from before I made the change. I think it was messed up to begin with. Now that it's back, it's listed in programs, but it won't let me open the 'Configure Java' window, and when I click on 'Verify Java version' on Java.com, it closes all of my browsers and I have to reopen the internet. Java Platform is set to 'Always Activate' in Firefox plugins for SE 8 U31 and Java Deployment Toolkit 8 31 is set to 'Ask to Activate' The toolkit is described as a 'NPRuntime Script Plug-in Library for Java.

Alright, try to uninstall Java from the Control Panel, restart your computer and see if it shows up in SecurityCheck after.

I uninstalled it in the Control Panel and rebooted. It's still showing up in Security Check though. There isn't a file folder named Java anymore, and their are no more add-ons or plug-ins named Java, of any kind. Should i use CCleaner? I could also try JavaRa again? Maybe I need to run Malwarebytes in safe mode? I was also reading about this http://support.microsoft.com/mats/program_install_and_uninstall, 

What do you think?
