When I go to 'Add or Remove Programs' in Windows XP, I see entries for some old JDK installations such as 'Java SE Development Kit 6 Update 16'. When I click the Remove button I get the message 'Fatal error during installation'.
I suspect this is because at some point I manually deleted the folder from the filesystem. If this is the case is there anyway to get rid of the entry in 'Add or Remove Programs' dialog? Basically I just want to get rid of all traces of the program.
I also tried CCleaner since that provides uninstall functionality. When I uninstall using that, it seems to succeed but then I reopen CCleaner and the entry is back so it obviously didn't actually do anything.
