    Installation process detectes previous install


      I'm trying to install Java runtime environment 6 under Windows 7 (jre-6u22-windows-i586-s.exe), when I execute the installation file it prompts me that the software has already been installed and asks me if I want to reinstall it.
      Java is not installed on that machine, it used to be installed and was badly uninstalled, by manually deleting the JRE folder from program files folder and removing some Registry values.

      I need to cleanup the machine so the installation would not detect any previous versions and do a clean install.
      I've gone through the Registry and deleted anything with java/jdk/jre in it, what else should I remove so that the installation will not detect any traces of java on that machine ?
