Error Uninstalling Java program in Windows 7

By technet03 ·
I have Windows 7 and have install Java version 6 update24. But, now that I want to unistall Java using Control Panel, it gives me the following error message:
"ERROR 1723. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor."
Can anybody help me with this problems. Thanks

The Running Process. You need to stop all of Java before attempting to uninstall it. Try looking in it's listing on the Start Menu to see if it has a Uninstall Option there and if it does use that to remove it.
