So I've been going in circles all day with this all because i needed to update Java developers kit and Java runtime environment after being gone from the java developers world for almost a year...
First i ended up having to delete all versions of java on my PC so i could start fresh. When i went to remove the last JDK and JRE versions in "Add/remove programs," it said they both uninstalled. but they were still on the list even when i refreshed. So I tried to go in and manually delete the files, and the folder "Java" in my program files shows up when i search for it. but when i try to delete or open it, I receive an error saying that the folder doesn't exist. what the hell? So I figured maybe I would try to install the new java anyway, and I get this halfway through the install process:
I checked for anything that could cause this including my AVG antivirus... Nothing. Same damn error. The java FAQ page shows nothing usefull for me, and when i try to install JDK it keeps telling me its already installed and goes in a big circle.
I'm thinking there are some problems in my registry. Or i really screwed something up. I really could use some help right now
EDIT: so somehow i managed to recreate the java folder im my program files and JDK looks like it's installed correctly now, but I still have the same problem with instaling JRE.
All help is appreciated. What should i do?

Maybe cause this is a forum about the JavaHelp System, not about helping people with java installation.
BTW this 'whole' forum is one of the less crowded in the all set of sun java forums, not a good choice for such a question.
