Another suggestion from bdlt is this

1. copy(not install) the entire java folder of a previous version from another PC and then try to upgrade.

2. copy the entire folder of the current version from another PC, uninstall(see if it crashes again), then reinstall.

I was able to fix this by selecting 'change' instead of 'remove' under add/remove programs. it let me reinstall java, which seemed to fix it, and i was able to uninstall and reinstall again from there. it appears to be back, I have java settings in the control panel again. only, now java content doesn't load on the web. this is probably just some configuration problems.

also, when I try to validate on the java website, it isn't recognizing the installation. but for once, i know its there!
