I have problem with installing and uninstalling Java. Some of my work cannot be completed without a working Java. I tried to uninstall Java(TM) 6 Update 37 , it gave me an 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.

What can I do.

Thanks for the reply, the instruction is exactly what I tried already and it would not complete the uninstall. I tried clicking their "Java uninstall tool" and it doesn't seem to do anything.

Any other trusted software that can remove the old Java program?

I managed to uninstall the old program. They need to install the new version before the Java uninstall program can work.

But now I have a new problem. This is a recurring problem that prompt me to uninstall the old version to start out. When I install the new Java, it downloaded, installed until towards the end, an error message comes up:

Installer: Wrapper.CreateFile failed with error 5:Access is denied.

What is this. I know the Jave really never work correctly on this computer.
